How many pictures have you torn up because you hate them? What ends up in your scrapbook? The pictures where you look like a good guy and a good family man, and the children look adorable - and they're screaming the next minute. I've never seen a family album of screaming people.

Other quotes by Richard Avedon

People - running from unhappiness, hiding in power - are locked within their reputations, ambitions, beliefs.

Just advertising departments with legs and high heels.

Anything is an art if you do it at the level of an art.

My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.

My parents put the New Yorker in my crib. I saw Vogue and Vanity Fair around the house before I could read.
