The Richard Avedon app for iPad is a rich photographic experience that entices art and culture-minded individuals to explore Avedon’s work, to understand his process, and to differentiate between the object types in the Avedon archive.
Elegant and illuminating, the Richard Avedon app reveals the working process and catalogues the output of one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century. Organized into the major areas of Avedon’s focus: Fashion, Portraiture, and Reportage, the app encourages the study and appreciation of his work through in-depth descriptions of his print types and archival material, a visual history of his exhibitions and hundreds of images displaying the arc of this extraordinary artist's career.
Ratings and Reviews
Truly 5 stars
One of the most beautiful apps on the store, especially if you are a fan of Avedon work. In fact it is most comprehensive of his work. And I can't believe it free! Thank you to the people that made this, thank you from bottom of my heart
This is a beautiful collection of Avedon's work arranged in ways that give insight into the arc of his career. The reproductions are excellent (of course) but I would encourage people to see the work in the flesh and be truly astonished by his skill. This is a wonderful app that is all the more impressive for being free.
Fantastic Coffee Table App
I project artwork slide shows onto one wall of our kitchen for amusement and in the possibly forlorn hope that my kids will be drawn in.
I love this App, and would love it even more if there was a slide show option with adjustable timing and options for captions.
