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.
