In memory of Richard Avedon (1923-2004) -- one of the most influential and celebrated American photographers of our time -- 7 of his photographs are on view. For more than 60 years, he produced distinctive fashion and advertising photography, though his portraits with their stark white backgrounds are considered his most memorable.
