Irving Penn was a true photographer with style.
His black and white silhouettes were like a very neat hand sketch. Very few bold lines, the rest was light and shadows.
Really, how cool are these pictures? I can’t stop watching them, so simple yet so full of details.
Just a quote that made me think:
“I think that b&w pictures are intrinsically finer than colour. I think that I have never seen a really great colour photograph.”
