Richard Avedon’s portrait of Willem de Kooning

This portrait of de Kooning taken in 1969 is a prelude to Richard’s American West series. Though it may seem it was taken in the studio, it was actually snapped outdoors in natural light. White paper is taped to the side of a house for the backdrop. Camera: Deardorff 8×10 with 360mm Schneider lens and Kodak

Attention for my Students! Richard Avedon notes for printing;

This is an example of a memo Richard Avedon gave to the person who made ​​his prints. Remember you can dodge&burn in Lightroom and in Photoshop! So the quality will be beter.
