Irving Penn – Photographer of Elegance and Form / 1917-2009

Photographer Irving Penn passed away today in Manhattan. Penn’s style was one of elegance, form, poetry and simplicity. They were inviting, drawing you in. The same can be said when you had a conversation with him. Each word he spoke was gentle and yet with spark. NPR has put together a selection of a few of Penn’s images as a reminder of the maestro behind the camera. View Images
