Not entirely interested in fashion photography, and not very familiar with Irving Penn's work, I wasn't sure what to expect.His portraits are wonderful, though, especially those from his "Small Trades" series, and his still lifes blow me away.Beautiful stuff and excellent reproduction.This book is definitely going on my "to buy" list, and I'll be seeking out his still lifes book.Still, the fashion work doesn't do much for me (my personal preference).Thankfully, this book doesn't focus heavily on it.
