Irving Penn Dies At Age 92

-------

It was announced earlier today that Irving Penn has passed away at the age of 92. The revered fashion photographer, known simply as Penn to those who worked with him, began shooting for Vogue in 1943 and over the course of his six-decades long tenure created some of the magazine’s most unexpected and unforgettable images. For more on Penn’s life and work, read The New York Times‘ obituary. Of course—and never more so than in this case—the proverbial power of an image speaks volumes. Here, a small selection of Penn’s iconic pictures.

    A brilliant artist! We must not forget his close up photography with Clinque products and The Ralph Lauren ad of the paint can. He will always be remembered for his brilliance and iconic style.

    It was such a thrill and privilege to be his contemporary and be able to see his work in US Vogue until recently. I always looked forward to see what images he had done for food pages- he even knew how to make peppers and apples glamorous!
