This event has ended.

One of the world’s preeminent photographers, Irving Penn (1917–2009) is famous for his professional still life, portraiture, and fashion photography. By 1950, he had already established a successful career at Vogue magazine through a variety of projects. Yet, from this early point in his career, and throughout the remainder of his life, the artist dreamed about pushing beyond creative boundaries. The exhibition “Irving Penn: Women, Warriors” unites the artist’s first major non-commercial study—silver prints of posed nudes taken in New York between 1949-50—alongside platinum prints of his most ambitious personal undertaking: ethnographic portraits taken in Africa and the South Pacific throughout the early 70s.
