Richard Avedon's "continuous work"

Every picture by Richard Avedon I've ever looked at had two things: 1) a sense of absolute control 2) a mysterious & unfakeable sense of life. I have no idea how he did this. I look at his pictures -- high fashion models to roadside drifters -- in awe. It is as though I had never taken a picture in my life.
