This man was truly a visionary. He made a point of separating his commercial and personal work, yet his personal technique of showing every pore and every fallibility of the subjects at the end of his lens created a new eye and a new style of photography. Many have tried to imitate him, but there will never be another Avedon.

That advertising shot of Kate Dillon for The Avenue stands out in his commercial work as an image of pure beauty - something that he wasn't normally associated with. For this image alone, we must all salute his passing.
