“Youth never moves me. I seldom see anything very beautiful in a young face.” —Richard Avedon, American fashion and portrait photographer who revolutionized the look of Harper’s Bazaar and American Vogue in the 1950s and ’60s, and continued shooting until his death on this day in 2004. His most published image is likely “Dovima with
Elephants,” shown above, top left. Avedon’s work can be found—and should be sought out—in countless books and on his website. To read more fabulous Fashion Statements, click here. Photos: A perfectly random selection from his massive catalog. At top right: Avedon himself, in a self-portrait.
