Irving Penn at the Getty

Hurry-hurry, you LA people.

If you haven’t been yet, you HAVE to go – Getty Center, Irving Penn’s Exhibition “Small Trades”.   Irving Penn died at the age of 92 almost a month ago but he’s more than alive in the Getty. The collection of 1950s shots depicting regular people of small trades from London, Paris and New York is a perfect example of elegant simplicity and meticulous rigor that became the trademarks of Penn’s style.
You would think that a firefighter looks that same in these three cities…go check out yourself, I won’t open all the secrets.
