IRVING PENN – WORLDS IN A SMALL ROOM

175.00

First edition, published by Studio Vista, 1974.

By Irving Penn as an ambulant studio photographer

"I would often find myself daydreaming of being mysteriously deposited (with my ideal north-light studio) among the disappearing aborigines in remote parts of the earth. These remarkable strangers would come to me and place themselves in front of my camera, and in this clear north sky light I would make records of their physical presence." Irving Penn

This is near enough the effect he creates on the page, with very few points of reference aside the people themselves. From the pastry cooks of paris to the mud men of Asaro, all the people in this book are photographed with the same minimally textured backgrounds.
