Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 at ICP

‘Avedon Fashion 1944-2000’ at the International Center of Photography features six decades of Avedon’s fashion images, encompassing his magazine work from Harper’s Bazaar to Vogue through the New Yorker as well as the work he did for top fashion designers. Even if you’re familiar with Avedon’s work (and who isn’t?) this show is a must-see and truly inspiring.

The fashionable exhibition is the second installment in the International Center of Photography’s Year of Fashion. It includes 175 prints organized chronologically throughout ICP’s many galleries and includes a rare behind-the-scenes look at the magazine layout process showing many of Avedon’s original prints submitted to Harper’s Bazaar marked up with notes and crop marks.

One of the highlights of the show was seeing three versions of Avedon’s Dovima with Elephants. Be sure not to miss the scratched vintage print horizontal version downstairs..
