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.
