Photography Exhibition: The Museum of Modern Art - Irving Penn, 1917–2009

Jasper Johns by Irving Penn The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), in New York, NY has some of the most amazing exhibitions of contemporary photography in the US Irving Penn, 1917–2009 looks like it will be another in their series of wonderful exhibitions at the Museum. If you’re in the New York City area, don’t miss this exhibition. I plan to go myself, if at all possible.

The exhibition will run for the foreseeable future.

Irving Penn’s unbroken stream of creative invention spanned seven decades and established an indelible standard of clarity, grace, wit, and elegance. The Museum of Modern Art has collected and exhibited his photographs since 1943, and in 1984 we were proud to present a retrospective organized by his friend John Szarkowski, then head of MoMA’s Department of Photography. A selection of Penn’s outstanding photographs from the Museum’s collection is presented as a tribute to this remarkable artist.

As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.
