Irving Penn

I am sad to post the news that one of the greatest photographers of all time, Irving Penn, died this morning at the age of 92. Read Andy Grundberg's obituary at The New York Times – undoubtedly the first of many remembrances in days to come. Above, a 1950 Irving Penn photograph of his wife, the model and artist Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, who died in 1992.
