Avedon's France: Old World New Look

France is often known as the Capital of Romance, Art and of course Cheese and Wine but more commonly (and one of our favourites) Fashion!

Avedon's France: Old World New Look explores Richard Avedon's fascination with France and collates a collection of spectacular photographs, selected interviews, letters, publications, and writings (including new material from the Avedon Foundation archives) and substantive essays by the authors. 

In addition to five portfolios of French sitters spanning a lifetime of portraiture, it looks at Avedon's apprenticeship to his mentor, Alexei Brodovitch and his encounters with French fashion. It looks at his idealised version of Paris in the movie Funny Face, his fresh take on the Belle Epoque in his book on Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Diary of a Century and his fruitful association with the magazine Egoiste later in his life.

Avedon's France offers a full account of Avedon's restless pursuit of new ways of looking at the world, and it reveals a master image maker and a true artist for his time.
