"Photographs 1946 - 2004"

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (exhibit through November 29, 2009)

No photographer in my lifetime has had a greater influence on my work and my 'photographic eye' of the world than Richard Avedon.

This is a magnificent installation of his artistry.

Photographing a photography exhibition... :-) I really like this shot as those people are totally unaware of your image....

great shot.....did you have to "sneak it" ???

@susan: No - no sneaking - and I was surprised at this. There was a large sign at the entrance requesting no photographs but despite museum docents in each room - many people were clicking away. I would never take a photo of an image itself - but felt perfectly at ease with my actions here.

Impressive composition Stephen. Really like the foreground exhibit and the candid capture of the people observing the various works. Interesting to look at each person and each exhibit. Definitely a creative and fascinating shot.
