Book Description 
  
In August of 2007, Denmark's renowned Louisiana Museum of Modern Art presents Richard Avedon: Photographs 1946-2004, the first major retrospective devoted to Avedon's work since his death in 2004. (With stops in Milan, Paris, Berlin and, Amsterdam, the highly-anticipated exhibition concludes in at San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art in October of 2009.) This beautifully produced catalogue, designed by the renowned Danish graphic designer Michael Jensen, features deluxe tritone printing and varnish on premium paper, and includes 125 reproductions of Avedon's greatest work from across the entire range of his oeuvre. It also contains a small number of color images--including one of the most famous photographic portraits of the twentieth century, "Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent" (1981). Texts by Jeffrey Fraenkel, Judith Thurman, Geoff Dyer, Christoph Ribbat, Rune Gade and curator Helle Crenzien offer the most sophisticated and thorough composite view of Avedon's work to date.  
  
About the Author 
  
Richard Avedon is the best-known and most influential fashion photographer in history. He was born in New York in 1923, and after studying photography at the New School during the late 1940s, he spent 20 years as a photographer for Harper's Bazaar, creating many signature images that remain recognizable to this day. He also worked for Vogue and contributed photographs to publications such as Look and Life. Avedon died in 2004 after recent exhibitions at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Fraenkel Gallery, San Fransico. The Richard Avedon Foundation was established in 2005. The Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, founded in 1979 by Jeffrey Fraenkel, has established itself as one of the leading photography galleries in the United States by presenting the work of such seminal artists as Diane Arbus, Carelton Watkins and Garry Winogrand. Fraenkel has also produced some of the medium's finest catalogues and books, including Lee Friedlander: The Little Screens, Robert Adams: Turning Back and Richard Avedon: Made in France. "Judith Thurman is the fashion writer for The New Yorker, and the author of Secrets of the Flesh: A Life of Colette."
