As you know, most of the time, i talk about Disney topics. But sometime, when there is something really exceptional, i also write about it, even if it's not at all related with Disney theme parks. That's why in "Disney and more" you have the "and more".
So, today, and because it is a stunning exhibit, i will let you know about the Richard Avedon exhibit at the Musée du Jeu de paume in Paris. I have to confess that Richard Avedon is my favorite photographer, but he is also one of the greatest photographer of all time, and certainly the best portraitist ever.
The exhibit cover the whole career of Avedon, from his fashion pictures for Harper's Bazaar magazine to his famous portrait of people of the American West. Avedon is a visionary genius, and you will be stunned by the exhibit, just like you can be when you come out of a good WDI E-Ticket! As a matter of fact, this exhibit is a real E-Ticket of pure art!
Richard Avedon did portraits of almost any celebrity in the world - like this famous portrait above of a "desperate" Marilyn Monroe - or this one below of Charlie Chaplin, and all of them are fantastic!
So, if you come in France to visit DLP and if you still have some days to spent in Paris, don't miss it, the exhibit closes September 27!
And for those of you who won't be able to attend the exhibit, here is a youtube video filmed inside the exhibit before the opening, in June.
