Iconic photograph from the master, Richard Avedon. Gorgeous Nadja Auermann
with her bony friend.
The spectacularly decadent photos of the Mr and Mrs Comfort editorial
photographed and created forĀ  The New Yorker by Richard Avedon,
in collaboration with Doon Arbus with Nadja Auermann, wereĀ  featured in
the Nov 6, 1995 issue.
You can read what you like into this modern fable but there areĀ  many theories
that Avedon wasĀ  saying goodbye to fashion and, perhaps, something else.
