The end of an era

October 17, 2009

With the death of Irving Penn earlier this month, has put up an article on the influence Irving Penn and Richard Avedon have had on fashion photography with a small slideshow of Penn's photos through the years. Above is the lovely and giggly Jasper Johns in 2006. There's a beautiful photo of Frederick Kiesler and Willem de Kooning from 1960--de Kooning who I would have loved to know.

The article does no justice to the man and his legacy, but it's worth reading if you have no idea who/what I'm talking about.
