Tribute to Irving Penn

In October the photography world lost one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century. Irving Penn passed away at the age of 92. Having studied under Alexey Brodovitch, Penn began shooting for Vogue during a defining decade in American fashion and editorial design—the 1950s. He continued working until his death leaving behind a body of work that will influence many artists to come.
