Judith Aronson

I have just received in a large brown paper parcel a copy of Judith Aronson’s book, Likenesses.   I’ve always liked and admired her photographs, some of which we acquired when I was at the NPG.    She knew Avedon when she was a student, but they are much less direct and confrontational than his, more meditative and much more often informal.   They’re photographs of a world we have lost (or maybe it’s only I who have lost it), of writers and intellectuals, when ideas ruled the world.   I think they’ve just gone on display in Cambridge University Library.
