RIP: Irving Penn

Oct 7 2009 - 5:12pm

Irving Penn, lensman extraordinaire, died today [1] in his Manhattan apartment, at 92. The famed photographer is best known in fashion for shooting vibrant scenes for Vogue. He married model Lisa Fonssagrives and they spent 42 years together until her death in 1992. I don't have a favorite Penn photograph, I think it's time to take a look at the artist's work [2], pay tribute, and select something special.
