Richard Avedon On White

Richard Avedon On White There are no props; there is nothing to lean on or hide behind. "I've worked out a series on no's," Avedon explains.  "No to exquisite light, no to apparent compositions, no to the seduction of poses or narrative. And all these no's force me to the 'yes.' I have a white background. I have the person I'm interested in and the thing that happens between us."
