Richard Avedon is one of the few photographers I am actually aware of. He was an important and key figure in photography and his photo's speak for themselves. I like this photo particulary mainly due to the subject matter. The model is attractive and has a sexual tension to it but does not exploit her or is explicit. The portrait composition is simple yet effective. The grey background and the lighting of the model create an interesting picture.
