Irving Penn exhibition

photo news


2017 marks the centenary of the birth of Irving Penn (1917-2009), one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. In partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art de New York, the Grand Palais pays hommage to this major artist, famed for his fashion and beauty photography.

Remaining faithful to studio photography, he created, in each portrait, a real intimacy with his subject, which was his signature.
