Irving Penn Centennial – Metropolitian Museum of Art

Fashion, Visits

This is a show following the trajectory of one of America’s most iconic photographers. I was able to admire his perfection in spare elegance,  as I observed his inquiry changing the language of fashion photography,  finding the authentic core of portrait subjects,  examining the topography of the female nude and capturing the essence of the other in foreign locals. I knew the facts of this photographer. They paled in comparison to the  visuals.
