Written by Richard Avedon’s longtime business partner Norma Stevens with award-winning author Steven M. L. Aronson, Avedon: Something Personal is an insightful biography written through the lens of one of Avedon’s closest confidants. The book is equal parts memoir, biography, and oral history.
Richard Avedon, arguably the most famous photographer of all time and the only artist to have had not one but two retrospectives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art during his lifetime, managed to live a fairly private life.
Not unlike Richard Avedon’s own defining portraits, the book delivers the person beneath the surface, with all his contradictions and complexities, and in all his touching humanity.
