Thanks for the look into the working process of Richard Avedon. I love his portraits and it's seldom possible to take a look behind the scene a great artist.
Thanks for your great website.

Greetings from Germany

Enjoying your blog very much, Earl.

Avedon did in fact use a 4x5, once that I know of.

His photo of the Dali Lama was taken with a 4x5 Wisner view camera.

Wisner made a big deal about it at the time, in its ads in View Camera magazine.

It's obviously a 4x5 negative when you compare the film edges of this photo with the film edges of all the others.

As far as I know, this was the only time Avedon used a 4x5.

Awesome blog; I'm looking forward to your book!

This happened after my time. I can't even imagine how much he charged Wisner for that.
