1923- Richard Avedon was born in New York City
By Rebecca Kobert
SFMOMA has a new exhibit on their hands: the works of Richard Avedon, one of the most influential and prolific photographers of the 20th (and early 21st) century. Going into the exhibit, it’s obvious that you will be viewing beautiful photographs documenting culture, fashion, and portraits over a five-decade span; but it was up to SFMOMA Senior Curator of Photography, Sandra S. Phillips, to deliver an exhibit that could take awe-inspiring work and fit it into seven rooms, all the while organizing it in a way that would have museum-goers in a daze.
