PHOTO MASTERS: PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY RICHARD AVEDON

Richard Avedon (1923-2004) is an American master of fashion photography. At least, many modern photographers think so, looking at his work. In fact, besides the fashion style that Avedon really loved, the photographer was very appreciative of the artistic picture as a whole, considering it a real vocation.
In his portfolio, with which we will meet today, there are works of various genres, from a staging portrait for the fashion industry to street reportage.
Richard Avedon’s first experience in the fashion industry is very revealing.

Each of its strict black-and-white photographs, consisting of well-adjusted lines that do not have more than one detail, opens up a new look at familiar objects, forcing you to smile, think, or just see the world differently.
If you take a closer look at the images of Chema Madoz, it’s hard not to notice the surrealistic origins of these images. The author “plays” with the things in the pictures just as in the mid-20th century the famous artist Rene Magritte did this, offering the viewer riddles like, images of a tube with the words “This is not a tube”.
