Worlds in a Small Room - Irving Penn (Boek)

On assignment for Vogue in the 1950s and 1960s, Penn (1917-2009) traveled the world as an "ambulant studio photographer", setting up a tent and photographing the people of Cuzco, Crete, Extremadura, Dahomey, Cameroon, San Francisco, Nepal, New Guinea, and Morocco. There is as well his photo-essay on the "small trades" of Paris, London and NYC. A photo-book masterpiece of the late 20th century.

Cloth-bound hardcover in a pictorial dust jacket. 96 pages; 76 b&w photographic plates--most full-page--including text illustrations and photographs of Penn at work by his wife, Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn; 11 x 11 inches
