Richard Avedon: Relationships

Richard Avedon: Relationships


Drawn from the Richard Avedon collection at the Center for Creative Photography, Richard Avedon: Relationships presents eighty portrait and fashion photographs – ranging from the 1950s to the early 2000s – including examples of Avedon’s large-scale prints. The exhibition will explore three kinds of “relationships” in Avedon’s life and work: the interactions between the figures within the frame, the partnerships Avedon formed with longstanding subjects, and importantly, the relationship between Richard Avedon and the Center for Creative Photography.

Avedon’s works, which he personally selected for donation to the Center, enrich the collection through the importance of the subjects he photographed, the widespread circulation of his images through publication, Avedon’s unique and influential photographic approach, and his blurring of the line between artistic and commercial production. The exhibition will feature film footage and related documents to tell the story of Avedon’s choice to invest in the Center as a recipient of his photographs, and will explore the range of photographs he gifted to the institution.
