Publisher's Comments

Trained as an artist, Irving Penn began photographing for Vogue in the 1940s, going on to become a versatile and accomplished image-maker. His photographs vary from portraits of the native peoples of Peru, New Guinea and Morocco to those of artists and writers, from stylish fashion editorials to nudes, and from still lifes of trash to gravity-defying still-lifes of Clinique cosmetics.
