    An interesting article. Thanks for posting. I saw his work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY a few years ago and was totally impressed.

    Neal, Thanks for sharing the article...saw Avedon when he and Laura were at the Amon Carter for a talk when her book was released. He was quite animated and Ms. Wilson was very gracious with the night letting him talk away..think Lee was there the same night. It was very special to hear him talk about his work.

    We indeed lost a National Treasure, one of many the past year.

    Sounds to me that Avedon knew that his time was just about over and he wanted to go out doing what he loved, working at his art. A powerful demonstration of mind and will.

    It also seems that he did not want to go to a hospital or see a doctor who might have intubated him, put him on life suport which can be a horrific experience. Maybe why he decided to go to Texas where he could be master of his final destiney.
    Time & tides wait for no one, especially photographers.

    Neal thank you for posting this link, reading it again now that my brain is less foggy from flu I find it very moving and a fine tribute to a man who will be missed by many. As RAP has said he seems to have gone controlling his final destiny and I hope when our own time comes we will be able go the way we would like.
