Richard Avedon [masked]) set new precedents in fashion and portraiture for nearly seven decades. His interest in performance began in the 1940s and 1950s with his early photographs of leading models in designer clothing for magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Taking his models out of the studio, Avedon combined the sophistication and glamour of haute couture with the excitement of modern life he celebrated in the streets of Paris, Rome, and New York. His engaging and emotionally moving photographic images featured theatrical gestures, poses, and expressions combined with an attention to mise-en-sc?ne. The dramatic elements in this work link his fashion photography to his interest in stage and cinema in New York and Hollywood. These photographs capture his enthusiasm for people engaged in roles that mesmerized and fascinated him, and they tell us as much about the relationship between performance and the body as they do about the people in them.

Cost $12.50 (Art Museum)
Cost $14.00 (Palm Springs Air Museum)

We will plan on arriving at the museum at 11am. As it is a 2 1/2 hour drive, plan on leaving at 8 or 8:30.
