The Story Behind a Photograph


General Photography

“I was so drunk I could barely stand up […] My organs were so messed up from drinking I was in physical pain. I couldn’t zip up my pants because my stomach was killing me. I didnÂ’t even realize I wasn’t wearing underwear until the magazine came out. […] I had to explain to my grandmother that this was the definitive photographer of the 20th century.” - Chan Marshall about that infamous photo by Richard Avedon.
