You have until the November 29, 2009 to go to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and see the Richard Avedon exhibition of nearly 200 photographs he took from 1946 until 2004.
The massive photo collection is a chronological account of the life experiences that Richard Avedon embarked on. From post-World War 2 to American counterculture in the 60s and 70s and many photos of the U.S.' most influential people, this exhibit is a beautiful account of a full and rewarding existence.
Some of the famous faces Richard Avedon has captured include Marilyn Monroe, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol (torso only), and even a certain former Illinois senator.
Richard Avedon’s pictures are worth much more than a thousand words. When consulted to describe some of his pieces, you will find your dictionary and thesaurus useless. So go put some flowers in your hair, eat some Rice-a-Roni and check out Avedon’s work while it is in the States.
