These ravishing Richard Avedon captures are some of the best photographs of style, beauty and culture from the last 50 years. Richard Avedon was a fashion photography mogul who made large contributions to defining America's style, and his captures of famous celebrities are still included in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Avedon began his career by working as an advertising photographer for a department store, but his work was quickly recognized, and the following year he appeared in Bazaar Magazine. What distinguished Avedon's work from other photographers' was his minimalist style, and he commonly captured celebrities looking directly into the camera in front of a white background

These editorials include pop icon photobooks, haunting hippie portraits and legendary model editorials.
