On Saturday night I attended the opening night for the new Avedon exhibit. An expat friend who works in the arts and fashion and invited me. It was a fun night. Folks were very fabulous. We saw one women wearing sky high heels (I guess she wasn't walking on cobblestone streets) that had the British flag on them.
The Avedon photos were found in a trunk belonging to late model Anne Theophane Graham.
This is the first time the photos have been displayed publicly. If you are in Rome and like fashion and/or photography, the small show is worth checking out.
Avedon was one of the most influential photographers in the world. These photos, mostly from the early 50s, are incredible.
