Byron Guinanzaca

Byron Guinanzaca: This photograph, as an inspiration of Avedon’s, shows the beauty and theoldness of the human together in a juxtaposition of life. This is what came to mymind when I saw Richard Avedon’s Photograph. The photograph has a high contras which makes it more dramatic and highlights the figure of the old man.

Richard Avedon: Death and beauty in the same frame. The composition of the photograph is perfect and the fact that it is in color gives it more power to what it has to say. The way that she holds the doll makes me think that she is not interested on children nor her husband but her main purpose is to be in the frame.

Byron Guinanzaca: Physical aspect is the menace of today’s society. But

still there are some people who are happy with their appearance. This is

my vision in response of Avedon’s Photograph. This photograph is the

opposite of Avedon’s because we see a different vision from the original

but almost with the same feeling.

Richard Avedon: This photograph reminded me of the constantly worry

of getting the perfect body. What makes this portrait stronger is the

position of the subject. The unlike curved shape of his body.

Byron Guinanzaca:  People, people, people. When I first saw Avedon’s photograph

I analyzed it very carefully and saw how each individual was preforming a different

activity. This is product of Richard Avedon inspiration trying to capture  many

in one place but each one in their separate world.

Richard Avedon: This photograph captures many reactions and activities at the same

time in only one shot. There is a variety of emotions and reactions from the subjects

and that is what makes the photograph so interesting for the eye because it makes

you curious about what was happening at that moment.

Byron Guinanzaca: Suffering. is the first that I can think by seeing the below

image. Indeed, Richard Avedon was a master of portraits. But I thought that I

can transmit the same felling by photographing something that is not a portrait.

Richard Avedon: One of the most emotive portraits I have seen is this one. This

is a strong portrait and not only because of the subject but for the feeling that

black and white deliver us.

Byron Guinanzaca: My first reaction to Avedon’s photograph was “never surrender”

and this photograph shows how the age nor the incapacity of walk is not a problem

for this person to compete and to try to achieve his goal.

Richard Avedon: In This photograph I see two old guys but i see them with a lot of

energy and like if the man at the left were saying “go ahead bro! nothing is

impossible…”

Byron Guinanzaca: The innocence of a child is unique and here I have brought

a portrait of a little boy who seems afraid and lost. Unlike Avedon’s portrait of

the boy with the gun who seems secure of himself and ready for everything.

Richard Avedon: Toughness is what I see in this portrait. The duty look of the

boy makes me wonder what was he doing before of the photograph and also

by the look of his face I want to know if he really has that look or it is just for

photograph.

Byron Guinanzaca: Another juxtaposition where we see a little girl wondering.

where her mom could be. The shadow aside the little girl looks like a hole.

I would say that, that is how empty she feels without her mom.

Richard Avedon: This photograph show us how the relation in family should be.

This is one of my favorites from the Family Kennedy Series.

Byron Guinanzaca: Ever since, we have had social classes. not only in America

but all over the world. This photograph show us a interesting aspect of life. It

show us that no matter if we are wealthy or poor we will always have something

to worry about. In both photographs the subjects have a look of anxiety.

Richard Avedon: As long as we are alive, we will always have something that

distress us. That is what I see in this photograph. A mixture of sorrow,

suffering, and anxiety.

Byron Guinanzaca: This is another result from the long study of Richard Avedon’s

techniques.

Richard Avedon: Fashion Portrait. A perfect use of photographic techniques

combined with the beauty of the subject make a perfect work of art.

Byron Guinanzaca: Here I tried to mock Avedon’s famous photograph but my

idea was a little bit more simple. Working with different types of light and to

get the right angle for the light was a little bit of a challenge.

Richard Avedon: A famous work of art. Different from other fashion photgraphs

and unique in style and content.
