Retro Snap: What Did Richard Avedon Think Of Brooke Shields?

Richard Avedon photographed Brooke Shields for a number of iconic shots, including this one which was a collaboration with Keith Haring.

He remarked: “Brooke is a lightning rod. She focuses the inarticulate rage people feel about the decline in contemporary morality and destruction of innocence in the world.”

Does this picture do that for you? The cartoon figures look so happy, and dancing!
