Figure Studies

As one of the most in-demand fashion and beauty photographers of the late seventies and early eighties, Avedis worked with some of the most celebrated models of the time.

Inspired by the diversity of beauty he observed in the human form, Avedis was moved to capture the youthful vitality of his muses in a series of nude studies that transformed their flawless physiques with marbleized textures or projected patterns created through photo manipulations in dark rooms that foreshadowed the advent of computerized retouching.

Through his provocative and innovative figure studies, Avedis ensured that physical beauty would in some form survive the passing of time.
