Death and American Magazine Photography

By way of major procrastination, I found a paper I wrote a year ago about Richard Avedon and Diane Arbus. It's kind of good and no one has read it besides my prof so I thought I would share it with you (if you felt like reading 23 pages about commercial photography and death).

Here it is: Newsstand Momento Mori, The Magazine Work of Richard Avedon & Diane Arbus

NB: I do not have permissions to reproduce the photographs in the document. Fair dealing?

Fantastic work Megan. Your creativity in both your writing and typography leave my college essays in the discount bin. Great use of photos within the essay as well.
