Audrey Hepburn by Richard Avedon, New York, January 1967

Richard Avedon created this fanciful image of the actress Audrey Hepburn for the first issue of Famous Photographers magazine in January 1967. After photographing Hepburn in the studio, he made a collage of several images printed to scale; an airbrushed sheet of Mylar laid over the collage concealed the visible seams.

In the accompanying article, Avedon explained that his interest in photocollage grew from “years of looking at contact sheets and being limited by the reality of what was in front of the camera.”
