A Quote by Richard Avedon on richard avedon, photography, photo, studio, fortune, and philosophy

I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment. They become in a sense... symbolic of themselves. I often feel that people come to me to be photographed as they would go to a doctor or a fortune teller - to find out how they are.

A Quote by Richard Avedon on photograph, art, and truth

A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is
transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an
opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph.
All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.
