About the exhibition

More than 25 years after his last exhibition, Milan pays tribute to the great American photographer Richard Avedon with an exhibition of more than 100 of his fashion and portrait photographs. With a more than six-decade-long career, he worked with a number of models and a wide range of portrait subjects, creating a powerful body of pictures that allow his viewers to study the likenesses of actors, ballet dancers, celebrities, civil rights activists, heads of state, inventors, musicians, visual artists, and writers. The exhibition uses a selection of these fashion photographs and portraits, from the extensive collection at the Center for Creative Photography, to delve into his approach to photographing people.
