Tribute to Irving Penn

self portrait

"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."
- Irving Penn -
June 16, 1917 - October 7, 2009
