Who is Irving Penn?

I saw that Irving Penn died yesterday. I had no idea who he was so I looked him up. This man was a truly great photographer. When I saw his work, I felt a little guilty that I didn’t know who he was. I’m not really tuned into the photography world, I’ll admit. The only two photographer names I knew previously were Ansel Adams and Annie Leibovitz.

The world lost a phenomenal artist when Penn died. Here is a link to a gallery of some of his art. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The website text is in another language but it doesn’t detract from the photos themselves.
