UR SAMLINGEN: RICHARD AVEDON THE FAMILY
GALLERIGÅNGEN - HASSELBLAD CENTER
26/2–27/3
Under USA:s presidentvalskampanj 1976 fotograferade Richard Avedon
landets politiska, ekonomiska och intellektuella elit. Trots de porträtterades
vitt skilda politiska åsikter anspelar titeln på en homogen social grupp vars
gemensamma mål är att behålla makten. De 69 bilderna publicerades samma
år i tidningen Rolling Stone.
”These photographs of the power structure of America – heads of unions, people in
government, bankers, heads of media – are a composite portrait of the power elite,
but I didn’t feel anything about most of these people. I didn’t want to pit Democrats
against Republicans, or good versus bad. It’s too easy for a photographer to do that.
In a way these pictures were almost taken by the people in the pictures. I didn’t tell
them what to wear. I didn’t tell them how to pose. However they presented
themselves, I recorded with very little manipulation. /…/ This silent theater attempts to
achieve an illusion: that everything embodied in the photograph simply happened,
that the person in the portrait was always there, was never told to stand there and in
the end was not in the presence of a photographer. A portrait is not a likeness. The
moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact
but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All
photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.”
-Richard Avedon
