I bought this book after seeing the exhibition of Avedon's work at the International Center for Photography in NYC. Check out the exhibit - Avedon's imagery is so inspired and unique. His inspiration still reveberates in today's photography - all the great fashion photogs of today borrow from him. A must have.

Living in New York, I was lucky enough to see "Avedon Fashion 1944-2000" at the International Photoraphy Center. Avedon's work is so beautiful! The book is a must have for any fashion fan. As a makeup artist, I was completely inspired by the looks through the years. And the section at the exhibit entitled "Paris at Night" is just magical (those photos can be found in the book in the 1950's section). Highly recommend this book to any fashion fan, photographer, stylist makeup artist, etc. for inspiration or just for the beauty of it all. Fantastic!

as a fan of mr avedon, i couldn't wait to peruse this book. when i got my hands on it, i hastily flipped through every page, and it was then that i noticed something: the early decades are quite well covered, and the 70's, 80's, etc. were sadly barren. being an admirer of the wonderful fashions of the 70's i couldn't wait to get to that era, and it was easily the shortest section in the book.

the 80's and 90's were also quite sparse.

i suppose i had hoped the decades would be a little more evenly represented, with the exception of his beginnings (which is understandably one of the largest chapters).

still a great book, just not sure it is worth the escalated price.

This book is just too awesome to go through in one day.
Love that it has one of the best fashion pictures taken by Avedon, and categorized by year.

would have been even better if it had some of the famous portraits shots he took.
over all, I am more than satisfied by this buy, if you are looking to see some fashion art, this one is a must.

I saw the exhibit at the MFA Boston a month ago. The exhibit is great, but the book is superior: Up close views of the photos on view, plus many more. Beautifully presented, gorgeous book.

The catalogue of the exhibition held in New york International Center of fotography in New York is a trip into the immaginific world of Richard Avedon.
Cronolgically organised, the book follows the same structure of the exhibition.
All the pictures seen this summer in the temple of fotografy are here reprduced in full page or double page.
The quality is superb and the written parts are the most interesting guide to understanding the lifetime work of the master of fashion photografy.
A must have for professionals and admirers.
