Publisher's description

This monograph on the work of Gideon Lewin, master printer and assistant to Richard Avedon, reveals moments never told, stories never heard, and a life that only a few ever experienced. It is a story of a close working relationship and collaboration with a master.

Avedon: Behind the Scenes, 1964-1980 relates Lewin’s personal experiences working with Richard Avedon for 16 years. It is about the hard work, the intrigues, the energy, the mysteries, the humor, and the commitment to creating images that were larger-than-life and will last for generations. The book illuminates many details about preparations for Avedon’s major exhibitions, the master classes he was a part of, and many behind-the-scene stories working on fashion collections in Paris and in New York for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, photographing the world’s most famous personalities and most beautiful women: Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, Cher, Jean Shrimpton, Veruschka, Twiggy, Rene Russo, Patti Hanson, and Lauren Hutton. Finally, this book opens the window to the lighter side of Richard Avedon, as well as his total dedication to the art of photography in his determination to leave a legacy unlike that of no other photographer. With more than 200 photographs Gideon Lewin: The Avedon Years, 1964-1980 is a singular and remarkable journey.
