A fantastic documentary about Richard Avedon (1923-2004), an influential American fashion and portrait photographer. The New York Times said of him that “his fashion and portrait photographs helped define America’s image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century”.

He is also known for his seminal book capturing American Western figures: In the American West (1985), which we selected as one of our 20 favourite photography books.
