Five years after Richard Avedon's death at 81 the International Center of Photography is setting the record straight. Avedon was indeed a great artist, and his fashion photographs are his greatest work.


This may not be quite the way Avedon wanted it. His own pursuit of greatness often involved playing down the half-century of fashion magazine work he did for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue as little more than a day job and emphasizing his portraiture, which he produced voluminously.

Read the complete review in The New York Times.
