Richard Avedon

What I love about these ones is the movement in them. They remind me of drawings we'd do as animators trying to capture the extreme positions. Makes me wonder if maybe Avedon had a background as an animator

And these are some of his brilliant portraits. I think again you can see that some of these are like drawings, or ideas you may have for drawings. The flatness, and the way he has subverted the people in them in a way that its not just normal life you're looking at.

Mini Kennedy is a lush portrait!
I think maybe Dick might have been a dancer in a previous life!
