Exploring photographer Richard Avedon’s fascination with France, Avedon’s France brings together a collection of spectacular images; selected interviews, letters, publications, and writings—including material from the Avedon Foundation archives—and substantive essays by authors Robert M. Rubin and Marianne Le Galliard.

In addition to five portfolios of French sitters spanning a lifetime of portraiture, Avedon’s France looks at the renowned photographer’s apprenticeship to his mentor, Alexei Brodovitch; his encounters with French fashion; his idealized version of Paris in the movie Funny Face; his fresh take on the belle epoque in his book on Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Diary of a Century; and his fruitful association with the magazine Egoïste later in his life.

Avedon’s France offers a full account of Avedon’s restless pursuit of new ways of looking at the world, and it reveals a master image maker, a true artist for his time.
