AN INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE
When I began this blog in May 2006, I added a section on my years of experience assisting the world-famous photographer Richard Avedon (photo, right, directing model). This is now the 26th entry in that thread, and there are many more to come as I dig deeper into my old files and prod an aging memory. All of my experiences with the master date from September 1952 through December 1956, and again from December 1959 through October 1965. This leaves gaps from 1923-52, 1957-1959, and 1965 until his death in 2004. I would love to fill these with the help of others for use here, or possibly to add to someone else's book, video, or oral history project.
The Wikipedia entry on Avedon contains abbreviated basic information on his entire life, but of necessity leaves us with more questions than answers. Perhaps someone reading this can fill in some of the missing pieces. It is possible that I am the only living person with a really extensive, thorough knowledge of both his life and career during the period 1952 through 1965, and I would like to share this for posterity while I am still able.
If you have anything to add, please leave a comment below and I'll contact you. Thank you.
