PostNEW Richard AVEDON Album

A NEW Richard Avedon sub-album was created in the History of Modeling Album: Some Top 60s Photographers.

Included in the Richard Avedon sub-album is a NEW Junior Bazaar Magazine 1945-1948 mini-album.

Junior Bazaar had been a section for teenage girls inside of Harper's Bazaar magazine. From 1945 through 1948, it was published as a separate magazine. Carmel Snow was the editor-in-chief of both Harper's Bazaar and Junior Bazaar. However, according to the October 29, 1945 Life magazine article, the average age of the Junior Bazaar staff was 21. Richard Avedon was just 22 years old when he photographed fashion layouts in the first issue!

Here is the October 29, 1945 Life magazine article:


Editor Andree Vilas and her assistants


Model Fifi Wheeler and Fashion Editors Pat Cornwell and Ann Wade


Richard Avedon, models and a stylist


Art Directors Kitty Higgins and Lillian Bassman
