Image of the Day

This is an image of photographer Irving Penn's Studio in Paris, 1950, when Penn was 33 years-old. There, as well as in London and New York, he took a series of photos of working people of all kinds (firefighters, a milkman, dance instructors, seamstresses, etc.). 252 of them are on display through January 10th in a show called Irving Penn: Small Trades at the Getty in Los Angeles. Read a review and see a slideshow at the Los Angeles Times' art blog, and visit the Getty Center for more info.
