Irving Penn 1917-2009

Irving Penn, one of the most famous and amazing fashion, portrait and still life photographers of his time died Wednesday at the age of 92. Irving Penn believed in the aesthetic that "less is more" and brought that out in his photography by isolating his subjects without barely using a prop. Below we have posted some of his work and some of our favorites in tribute to him. The Getty museum  here in Los Angeles has some of his work on display from the early 50's The exhibit is called Small Trades and runs through January 10, 2010.
