I mentioned that last weekend I went to the Avedon exhibit at the MOMA. Did I also mention that it was amazing? I don’t really know that much about photography or art for that matter but the clarity of his photographs is amazing. He had a way of distilling portraits of people to reveal something hidden inside. I love this picture of Marilyn Monroe. The way you can see how she really felt inside: empty and lost. Looking at the exhibit I couldn’t help but wonder what Avedon would reveal about the people I know.
The exhibit is running through the fall. If you live in Northern California I highly recommend a visit.
