Avedon is a master of fashion photography.

James N. Danziger

My Fair Lady was a momentous film for me. All through my youth, I was fascinated by Beaton’s costumes, his drawings, his stage sets, and his photographs, of course. As a result, I was a self-styled Anglophile, in love with London.

Dominique Aubier

My grandmother had given this book on Spain and bullfights to my dad for Christmas. One of my most treasured possessions to this day, it has a striking cover design after a lithograph by Picasso.

Brendan Gill
Jerome Zerbe

I found this book in New York in a secondhand store at the end of the 1970s.

Irving Penn

Penn is the absolute master of capturing still life and fashion.
