In this large scale, elegant portfolio produced by Harry N. Abrams, Inc. the photographs from the last year of Richard Avedon's life are beautifully presented in full page, lush black and white prints. Between the years 1945 and 2004 Avedon focused his sensitive lens on women - famous women like Marilyn Monroe, models, artists, and ordinary women who captured his eye and imagination. The result here contained in a survey accompanied by a warm and informative essay by Anne Hollander is a stunning collection of Avedon's best attributes. Avedon was a fashion photographer and a much sought after portrait photographer. He composed photographs like opera settings, emphasizing elements of contrast that would set off the model. Yet he was also one of those photographers who was able to capture the confidence of his subjects, allowing a relationship of mutual trust to open views of women few other portraitists in the medium have been able to imitate. The final photographs in the book (from his last year in 2004) are portraits of two consummate artists in the music world - Mitsuko Uchida and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson - who are known for their preference for privacy. They are stunning achievements and are fitting homages to a fine photographic artist. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp
