In 2009, I spent a few foggy days in San Francisco where I saw a Richard AvedonÂ exhibition atÂ SFMOMA. It was amazing. His portraits of the American west left me speechless. So, as you can imagine, I was utterly astounded when, upon my return to work, I was gushing about it to my creative director and she revealed to me she’d worked for Avedon. She’d WORKED FOR AVEDON.
So this week, I’m bringing you a very special series of short essays. They’re written by Tori, exclusively for this blog, and they’re all about what it was like working with the forefather of modern fashion photography, a true master of his craft.
