My Night at the GRAM

Richard Avedon preview party with Nigel Barker
Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Richard Avedon preview party at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. His portrait work is both inspirational and amazing. While there, I had the opportunity to meet Nigel Barker, another fashion photographer, who uses Richard Avedon's work as inspiration. Nigel Barker explained who Avedon was behind the camera. I was so excited to attend this event and felt very lucky to be there! I have a feeling I will be heading back to the GRAM to see Avedon's Larger than Life exhibit again; his work is definitely worth seeing more than once.

OMG OMG OMG!! It's him!! You're with him. Just fantastic! So happy for you! I really would like to go see this exhibit. Your posts have made me realize that I am way behind in seeing what the larger than life photographers are doing. Would love some inspiration. Thanks so much for sharing this experience!
