Everyone has a favorite Penn right?

Ok, well in case you can’t decide, a retrospective of Irving Penn’s work is on display now until December at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice (on the canals!). From his iconic black and white imagery (the likes of Truman Capote) to the softly vibrant flowers, there is no shortage of favorites to choose from. Mine? The corner portraits, Marlene Dietrich as the stand out.
