Untitled, ca. 1960’s, by Declan Haun
Richard Avedon first photographed Gabriel García Márquez on a rainy day in 1976, but he felt that the portrait was a failure. Avedon finally had another chance to photograph the writer in 2004. This is the portrait that emerged from that second session: http://nyr.kr/1h2usmA
I doubt the photographer intended it, but his image of two children still “behind bars” at the opened gate is filled with allegory about the situation of the freed slaves.
Photographed at the old Goose Creek Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina.
