Elisabeth Biondi: The New Yorker

April 28, 2011

Fifteen year Visual Editor icon, Elisabeth Biondi is leaving The New Yorker. A wonderful interview on Elisabeth Avedon’s blog for La Lettre gives some insight into the incredible vision and energy Biondi brought to one of the great magazines of all time. Biondi will be one of the curators at this year’s New York Photo Festival in Dumbo, May 11-15, 2011.

A photograph is an entity. You don’t crop it, you don’t butcher it, you don’t plaster text over it, you treat it with dignity. – Elisabeth Biondi

It’s a fascinating read, as are many things on Avedon’s blog.

Richard Avedon’s, Malcolm X, Portrait 1963.
