Homage to Avedon & Frank

I went to the Richard Avedon opening last night at the San Francisco MOMA. Along with the Robert Frank "America's" exhibition I walked away with my creative juices flowing. I try to recall some earlier images I shot that had direct influence from those two photographers.

Here are two shots from some years ago that I positively knew Avedon and Frank had a part in. In the beginning of any artist career they always experiment in other influential artist styles to see how they fit. Evolving from there to hopefully discovering a true personal voice.
