    In Memory of the Late Mr. and Mrs. Comfort

    Avedon's 1995 Halloween feature from The New Yorker.

    Enjoy...

    An interesting foot note to this is "Fashion Editor: Doon Arbus.."

    Doon Arbus
    is Diane Arbus's daughter.

    Here is a video interview with her and Avedon.

    Thanks for the link, John. Always liked Avedon's work, have never seen any of those images before. And, hey, that wooden corset really does it for me.



    NOTE FOR THE FOLKS IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA -- the Richard Avedon exhibition (200 photos) will be up at SF MOMA through Nov. 29th.

    If you are saving up for an M9, the first Tues of every month is free admission at SF MOMA (and other SF museums). That would be this coming Tues, Nov 3rd -- free admission.
