Noted Plainfield Native Irving Penn Passes

My former co-blogger Barbara Todd Kerr alerted me to the passing of Plainfield native Irving Penn, one of the most revered photographers of our time.

See the obit here:

I hope some of you have time to explore the work of Irving Penn over the years. He was truly a genius.

I remember when Penn's Passage came out in 1991--I was working as an assistant photo editor for a publishing company in Soho, and one of my photographer friends brought it in. It was one of the most beautifully printed books I had ever seen. A brilliant career!
