Richard Avedon has taken photos that moved me to tears.
But with this photo he has me tied up in conflicted knots:
I want it.
I want to hang it in my room and stare at it all night.
I know Avedon is a genius but come on!
He made George Bush Sr. so alluring,
there is so much swagger here.
Plus he titled it, 'George Bush, Director, CIA.'
I've been very conflicted about this whole thing.
I blame Avedon for making the white background so sexy And the powerful posture And the title.
I considered only writing about Avedon this month, but maybe I'll just write about wish-list items instead.
