Irving_Penn-3

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it.”

“I myself have always stood in the awe of the camera. I recognize it for the instrument it is, part Stradivarius, part scalpel.”
Irving Penn (June 16, 1917 – Oct 7, 2009)
