    Thank you for posting these! I tore them out of the paper and posted them all over my room during high school and college. I was mourning their absence in my life just last week…my favorite was the “banishment” photo (second from bottom).

    These are some really, really amazing images. I’m always up for some sexually suggestive skeleton photos!

    OH MY GOD. This shoot is SO EPIC, I’m reposting some of these on my blog for “Eye Candy Friday”. I hope that’s OK, I’ll give credit of course! xx

    The pictures are marvelous and show the fleeting nature of human beauty. In a few years all those gorgeous women will be transformed into the bony figures they are posing with. Kudos for such a great depiction of profound reality.

    Now, to those with pretentions to being picture makers…. this is what making pictures is all about!
    Thank you so very much for this awe inspiring pictorial.

    I stumbled across your post as I wanted to find these photos – thanks so much for posting. Saw the Avedon Fashion exhibition at the International Center for Photography in NYC yesterday – they feature 4 or 5 of this series. Avedon was a true artist.
    (My favorite is the 13th.)

    Very interesting photography. Almost dark and satirical but remains interesting. Nice work.

    I was wondering where that photo with the mirror came from, saw it a long time ago but didn’t know it was a part of a series. Thanks for posting! :)
