Avedon at MOMA

I almost missed it but I managed to sneak in under the wire to the Richard Avedon exhibit at SF MOMA recently, excellent show! Avedon is one of my favorite portraitists, up there with Leibowitz and Demarchelier in my book. Maybe not as creative as Leibowitz but I've never seen anyone able to give such gravitas to a portrait as Avedon. And seeing his work in larger-than-life size just added to the atmosphere. Thanks Rosanne for the field trip!
