Viewing Avedon: Glamorous

Glitz and glamour arrive at Hamiltons with the celebration of the late American Photographer Richard Avedon’s centenary. Showcasing iconic and rare photographs, the exhibition centres around glamour, which was a central theme in Avedon’s work. Avedon was known for his ability to bring sophistication and appeal to his subjects, capturing the essence of notable figures and infusing even the mundane with excitement.

Avedon was a pioneer and influential photographer who began his career at Harper’s Bazaar in 1945. The exhibition, curated in collaboration with The Avedon Foundation, highlights Avedon’s profound understanding of capturing human emotion and transcendent glamour through the lens. His portraits reveal the true character of his sitters and invite viewers to connect with the individuals beyond their public personas. Avedon’s revolutionary approach redefined fashion and perceptions of glamour, leaving an unmatched legacy in the world of photography.

If you’re looking for something glamorous to add to your diary, head to Hamiltons for this special exhibit.
