Alex Gurian reviews Irving Penn

Irving Penn (June 16, 1917 – October 7, 2009) was an American photographer widely known for his portraiture work. He is best known for his fashion photography, and worked at Vogue magazine. He studied drawing, painting, and graphics in college, and didn’t try photography until working as the art director at Saks Fifth Avenue in 1940. Penn was one of the first to use a simple grey or white background for posing models.
