Irving Penn | 1917-2009

Penn took this photograph, titled "Rock Groups," in San Francisco in 1967. He said his constant change of subjects fed his imagination. Penn once recalled a perfect week in which he went from photographing Italian sculptor Alberto Giacometti to French butchers to a session with models wearing French couture fashion, all in the same studio.
