marquez by avedon

richard avedon gabriel garcia marquez

here is the second session richard avedon and gabriel garcia marquez shared in 2004. the first attempt was in 1976, but the photographer considered the portrait a “failure” according to the new yorker. this failure, however, emerged in avedon as a desire–he sought to photograph the late author again; finally getting his wish nearly thirty years later. and what a success it turned out to be that time around. goodnight, sweet prince. by sv
