The Richard Avedon Foundation is pleased to present the RICHARD AVEDON mobile app for iPad. RICHARD AVEDON reveals the working process and catalogues the output of the most influential photographer of the twentieth century. Organized into the major areas of Avedon’s focus: Fashion, Portraiture, and Reportage, the app encourages the study and appreciation of the artist's work through in-depth descriptions of his print types and archival material and includes hundreds of images illustrating the arc of this extraordinary photographer's career. The app catalogues Avedon's most important museum exhibitions and shows selections from his long history of magazine work for Harper's BazaarVogueThe New Yorker, and Egoiste.

Elegant, illuminating, and informative, the RICHARD AVEDON app revisits Avedon's iconic fashion work, assembles his examinations of historical moments and polarizing figures, and uncovers never-before-seen contact sheets and work prints, providing an enlightening experience for even the most steadfast Avedon admirer.
