Everything you need to know about Irving Penn
Irving Penn was a discreet man. Of course, we know some pictures of him, a few rare self-portraits, and a number of images caught of him on shoots. At his funeral mass in October 2009 his family edited a little brochure of 12 portraits showing him at work. In this booklet - now a highly sought-after piece of fan memorabilia - was also a list of those who did the eulogy. Among them were his faithful stylist Phyllis Posnick, Anna Wintour and Issey Mikaye – proof, if needed, that fashion always played an important role in his oeuvre.
