Description

Trained as an artist, Irving Penn began photographing for "Vogue" in the 1940s, going on to become a versatile and accomplished image-maker. His photographs vary from portraits of the native peoples of Peru, New Guinea and Morocco to those of artists and writers, from stylish fashion editorials to nudes, and from still lifes of trash to gravity-defying still-lifes of Clinique cosmetics. This retrospective showcases 90 images traversing the span of Penn's career, accompanied by reflections and remembrances on Penn's work by those who worked with him. The book includes essays by Rosamond Bernier, Penn's first editor at "Vogue"; fashion designer, Issy Miyake; and anthropologist Edmund Carpenter, Penn's adviser on his expedition to New Guinea in 1970.
