Legendary photographer Richard Avedon

“There is no truth in photography. There is no truth about anyone’s person. My portraits are much more about me than they are about the people I photograph. I used to think that it was a collaboration, that it was something that happened as a result of what the subject wanted to project and what the photographer wanted to photograph. I no longer think it is that at all.”

This great photographer like no one else was able to pass in his photos amazing and rare phenomenon, mysterious play of light and shadows, in beautiful black and white.
