Irving Penn, dies at 92

As Irving Penn once poignantly said - 

"A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart, leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it.  It is, in a word, effective." 

Andy Grundberg wrote about Irving Penn's clarity of vision and prolific career in his obituary for the New York Times here

View a selection of Penn's photographs from Lens Blog - NYTimes.

May one of the most influential photographers R.I.P.!  Thanks for sharing your vision!
