Victoria Veenstra | Richard Avedon Portraits Lecture | GRAM
Victoria Veenstra, Associate Professor of Photography, Grand Valley State University
A look at Avedon's signature works with some sideways glances at his contemporaries and the times affecting them all. Learn what shaped his visual explorations into portraiture that sparked so much commentary in the year his photographic series In the American West, 1979-1984 emerged. Gain some insight and framework to view the photographer's pivotal work that influences contemporary photography today as much as it did when it was created.
