Richard Avedon and Eric Boman

Richard Avedon helped to define the post WWII woman with his imagery of impossibly elegant women, theatrically posed within Avedon’s signature theatric narrative style. Dovima with Elephants is one of Avedon’s most well-known photographs featuring the model Dovima dressed in couture at the Cirque d’Hiver of 1955 in Paris. Although not a direct homage, an image from Eric Boman’s “Oh, Morocco!” editorial for British Vogue March, 1992 shares a similar narrative.
