Photograph by Richard Avedon.
Alexey Brodovitch is one of the iconic famous art-directors of all time. Known for his art-directing on fashion-magazine Harper's Bazaar.
"Brodovitch's signature use of white space, his innovation of Bazaar's iconic Didot logo, and the cinematic quality that his obsessive cropping brought to layouts (not even the work of Man Ray and Henri Cartier-Bresson was safe from his busy scissors) compelled Truman Capote to write, "What Dom Pérignon was to champagne ... so [Brodovitch] has been to ... photographic design and editorial layout."
