"The pictures have a reality for me that the people don’t. It is through the photographs that I know them."  —Richard Avedon 

Seeing monumental work first-hand requires the right environment. The large-scale murals and portraits on display at Gagosian are impressive in scale, and beautifully presented.  Some murals extend 10 feet high and over 30 feet in width. Seeing them is believing them.

The Gagosian Gallery spared no expense in presenting the late Avedon’s work in a fresh and fascinating way. In addition to the design of the show, I appreciated seeing contact sheets, work prints, and other materials offering an insight into his creative process. There is no doubt that Avedon was a master photographer. But you’ll have to hurry up if you want to experience this show. The exhibit, which has been extended, ends on Friday.  —Lane Nevares
