Tribute to Irving Penn
"I have always stood in awe of the camera.
I recognize it for the instrument it is,
part Stradivarius, part scalpel."
"A good photograph is one that communicates a fact,
touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person
for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective."
