Portrait by RICHARD AVEDON
Portrait by TOM CASALINI
"In stark contrast to other great photographers of his time, Richard Avedon created his portraits in stark studio environments. For me, it is the individual that determines the setting. Not necessarily by choice, but by their personality. It’s a decision we come to together. I believe strongly in the partnership between myself and the subject – the trust we have to share, the bond we have to experience. But, like Avedon proved, sometimes the studio isolates the individuality of the person perfectly."
