"Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty" at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington.
Known for its iconic way of making portraits and fashion photographs, including for Vogue, Irving Penn ranks as one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century.
For this first retrospective dedicated to his work, we rediscover all stages of his career, street scenes from the late 1930s to celebrity portraits, fashion photos and still lifes. Each of them reveals a modernist instinct that primarily puts the stress on simplicity and elegance.
Until the 20th of March 2016.
