Her poise and confidence are remarkable.
Look. At. That. HAIR. <3(just so ridiculously cool)
This looks very much like tthe scene in " Blow up"- don't know if you know that movie, where David Hemming plays the photographer.... so intriguing...
Yes, Yes-but How do you Focus? It seems to be an issue for me!
For me too!! JUST ADORED Jean Shrimpton - she was my idol!!!
the shrimpwe were only yesterday talking about her impact and influenceB
I loved Jean Shrimpton, too. And I hadn't thought of "Blow Up" in years....good memories. Thank you. Mary
The recumbent Avedon reminds me of figures conceived by Michelangelo...and Shrimpton's costume reminds me a bit of Goya's Duchess of Alba, but her stance is so very 60's, or something new, forthright, a second position in contraposto, a swagger, nothing coquettish,a direct gaze like Manet's Olympia. Fun to see, Gaye. Loved it!
Q, & B, MJH- were we all obsessed with JS-& somehow we must be all of the same generation!
Philip, you are so right, though I had not thought of it-I was instantly focused on Avedon. He just commands my attention. and Yes I did think of the Goya. They both made the 60's great- I do not find any models more unique that the period of the Shrimp. Marisa Berenson Penelope Tree, Veruschka- the other eras pale in comparison.
Beautiful and original photo!I like too much!Have a good evening!
Excellent. Jean Shrimpton is a fabulous way to begin the day -- any day. My wife Caroline, who worked in record company public relations for a long time, had a couple of occasions to attend Avedon studio sessions. Fascinating stories.
