Passings ~ Irving Penn (1917~2009)

Not too long ago I posted about an insightful review of what seemed like a wonderful recent exhibition in Los Angeles of work by Irving Penn. Today The New York Times reports that Penn has died. You can find the obituary here. At the time of the earlier post I discovered this image - one of a series that Penn did late in life. It seems appropriate here.
P.S.: You also can find a story on Penn, an obituary, and a slide show all at The Guardian.
