Richard Avedon “Relationships”

The works on display enable visitors to explore the innovative aspects of Avedon’s art, which made him one of the most influential creative giants of the 20th century. On the one hand, he revolutionized the way models are photographed, turning them into actresses who were the main focus of a set, instead of static subjects, and showing their human side, while on the other hand his amazing, and often large-format, black and white portraits of celebrities reveal the more psychological side of the sitters.

A whole section is devoted to the collaboration between Richard Avedon and Gianni Versace, which began with the campaign for the 1980 spring/summer collection that marked the fashion designer’s debut, and continued right up to the campaign for the 1998 spring/summer collection, the first by Donatella Versace.
