Corcoran


Seeing the Avedon exhibition before leaving DC. The entire collection ("Portraits of Power" [corcoran]) is just overwhelmingly awe-inducing -- a few of the images might even fulfill the beautiful, great, and kind trifecta.

Of them all, though, the little corner with Vietnam correspondents Gloria Emerson and Denis Cameron (backstory [ajb].)next to a poet/teacher Wendy Wilder Larsen were my favorites, possibly because because the faux-cinematic setting was offset and thrown dramatically into context by their placement across from a horrifying portrait of a napalm victim. I'd love to have a print, but that's near-impossible, so maybe just the book will have to do. [$]
