Avedon On The iPad

They say you never forget your first love – and while I think that’s true for people, I think it’s also true for art, music and photography. I was introduced to the work of Richard Avedon in my high school photography class along with photographers like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Irving Penn. But it […]

With And Without You: Christian Wilbur

Massimo Vignelli (1931 – 2014)
