"Avedon: Fashion Photographs 1944-2000"

AmericaJR.com has teamed up with The Detroit Institute of Arts to give you the chance to win a pair of tickets to see "Avedon: Fashion Photographs 1944-2000".

This exhibition is a comprehensive study of Richard Avedon's (1923-2004) fashion photographs that includes a selection of over 200 images representing his stylistic evolution over a period of 50 years. Both iconic and lesser-known photographic prints, as well as never-before-seen material including contact sheets, magazine layouts, personal ephemera and archival material are included. All photographs are from the Avedon estate, and many are vintage prints.

Avedon began his career at the end of World War II in New York City. Influenced by photo reportage and the innovative eye of Harper's Bazaar art director Alexy Brodovitch, Avedon revolutionized editorial fashion work for magazines in the post-World War II era. At the young age of 23, his work was fresh and created to rejuvenate the Paris fashion market after the war.

As his career developed in the 1950s and 1960s, Avedon captured the independent lifestyle and spirit of the times in women's clothing of the period. In addition to his fashion work with celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor and Barbara Streisand, Avedon was one of the first high-profile photographers to work with African American and multi-racial models including Detroit-native Donyale Luna and the Eurasian model China Machado.

Avedon continued to dominate the photography world until his death in 2004. Works from the 1990s include his collaborations with famous models on the fashion scene including Kate Moss and Stephanie Seymour.

Tickets to the Avedon exhibit, which include museum admission, are $12 adults, $6 ages 6 to 17, $10 each for adult groups of 15 or more and are available at the DIA box office, 5200 Woodward Ave., at dia.org, or by calling (866) 342-8497.

Four lucky winners will win a pair of tickets to see "Avedon: Fashion Photographs 1944-2000" at the DIA.
