For over half a century, photographs by Richard Avedon have filled the pages of countless magazines and been displayed in the world's finest galleries and museums. Avedon changed the course of fashion photography in the 1940's and '50s with his seminal spreads for Harper's Bazaar. Simultaneously, he was reinventing the sometimes-staid genre of photographic portraiture, capturing vivid images of both celebrities and the non-famous that revealed the essence of his subjects. Featuring a wealth of rare visual material ranging from personal photographs to never-before-seen prints, this documentary also includes exclusive interviews with actor and director Andre Gregory, director Mike Nichols, fashion editor Polly Allen Mellen, editor Tina Brown and Avedon himself.
