I visited the Richard Avedon exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts today & I’m totally inspired by his work. The pieces displayed at the DIA give a glimpse into his extensive career as a trendsetting photographer & his commitment to diversity.

His creative passion & technical expertise are clearly evident image after image. The sharpness, composition, & lighting on each photo was just breath taking.

I will definitely need to visit again, just to be sure that I didn’t miss anything.

Many of my favorite images featured Dovima, Veruschka, China Machado, & Donyale Luna.

Speaking of Danyale Luna; last week, I heard an interesting segment on WDET’s “Detroit Today,” which discussed the Detroit’s life & career. Totally worth checking out. Fast forward to 34:32

Also, check out Afrobella’s post on Donyale. This is where I was 1st introduced to the Black Super Model.
