    Happy Birthday, Mr. Penn

    Irving Penn just turned 92. Some nice Penn photos to celebrate:

    In the early 90's I had this great idea -- two flat, featureless walls coming together to form an acute angle, take pix of people in the point. At the time I had no idea Mr. Penn had already been there, done that half a century before. I think it was Woody Guthrie that said "there can be no new ideas in music -- all you can get is a rework of what has already been done." Maybe this is also true for photo images.

    Thanks for posting the link. I enjoy the "respect" a Penn image commands.
