Still Life: Irving Penn Photographs 1938-2000 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In photographs taken over the past 60 years, Irving Penn brings his astute and austere eye to the venerable still life tradition. From his innovative ongoing work for the editorial pages of Vogue to the harsher personal work of his later years, which explores the visual intrigue of such inconsequential objects as street trash, bones, and cigarette butts, Penn has created images that have a wit, simplicity, and edginess that set his work apart. Penn has personally overseen every detail of this exquisite book's design and production. "Still Life" is certain to be one of the most powerful photography books of the new century.

Synopsis:

Irving Penn is one of the leading photographers of the 20th century. His elegant and innovative photographs are the subject of this volume. It includes some 200 images.
