Richard Avedon was an American fashion and portrait photographer. He worked for Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and Elle specializing in capturing movement in still pictures of fashion, theater and dance. In June 1971 he photographed Tina Turner for Vogue magazine.

„She’s larger than life size, and she’s dancing like only Tina Turner can. The microphone cord is flying behind her, her hair is flying, and you get that sense of motion through the photograph.“
