This year, 2017, is the centenary of the birth of master photographer Irving Penn. New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art held a centennial exhibition which has now traveled to the Grand Palais, Paris, and is on view through January 29, 2018. The exhibition “looks back over his seventy-year career, with more than 235 photographic prints, all produced by the artist himself, as well as a selection of his drawings and paintings.” Read more.
