{One Gallery Girl Visit: Avedon Fashion at ICP}

{Shoes by Perugia, Place du Trocadéro, Paris, August 1948}

{Veruschka, dress by Kimberly, New York, January 1967}

{Dovima with Elephants, dress by Dior, Cirque d'Hiver, Paris, August 1955}

This is my first official gallery visit that I am blogging about, and the exhibition was stunning. American photographer Richard Avedon's (1923-2004) work is full of life and movement. You can literally feel the energy. Plus, I've been obsessed with Paris ever since I walked through the room devoted to his photography of Paris at night!

"If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up." Richard Avedon

Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 is currently on exhibit at the International Center of Photography Museum until September 20th, 2009.

(ps...here is the perfect little outfit to wear to the show!!)
