An inedible stew of visual lunacy much of which I concocted with my own three hands.
you're a discoverer
I think this was 1987-88 - working at Iris Films on 23rd St. - Avedon worked there as a director doing mainly perfume, make-up and fashion jobs.We went out scouting locations - used my car. I had a cheap camera with me and said "Dick, take a photo of me..."
For real?That is a great story. My Portrait by Avedon.It's like you are in "Funny Face"That is also a great year for T-Birds ('56?), Love the Continental Kit.
'57 on the T-Bird. I think I was the only brash youngster in the office to call him "Dick."
I am going to say not a '57.as your car has:No Fins Bumper BoobsRound Turn SignalsStraight BumperNone of which a '57 has.I stand by '55 or '56Maybe it wasn't Richard Avedon either but his brother Jimmy Jack Avedon impersonating Dick in order to put one over on you?
Stick to your guns.. I bought it as a '57. Richard was Richard - a bit of a pompous prick, sometimes a decent fellow and me, not knowing much about phorography at the time, didn't think too much about his reputation. Actually, Jay Dubin - who directed many of Billy Joel's videos and was a much more approachable dude (and had some good weed to boot) was someone I got along with much better. "Dick" was just some gray-haired guy bumbling around the office...
