Exhibition: La France d’Avedon: Vieux monde, New Look

This exhibition will examine the relationship of American photographer Richard Avedon to Paris, looking at work he produced and influenced between 1945 and 1980. It will  focus on his portraits of French notables; Diary of a Century (1970), his photo book on French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue; and the film Funny Face (1957), which was inspired by Avedon. The exhibition will draw on previously unpublished materials from the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences archives, and extensive correspondence between Avedon and Lartigue.
