“I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment. They become in a sense… symbolic of themselves. I often feel that people come to me to be photographed as they would go to a doctor or a fortune teller – to find out how they are.” – Richard Avedon
With Avedon’s quote in mind, photographer Timmothy Lee set about shooting a series of photos of model Irina Funtikova. The results: a beautiful, natural, black and white studio portrait with nothing but the letters of her name as adornment.
