Irving Penn Exhibition at Grand Palais, Paris

If truth be told, I am no true lover of photography, with the notable exception of 1940/50s fashion photos. Although as I do see the genius in Penn's work, I was still rather dismayed at wandering through room after room of cigarette butts, flowers, nudes, workers and street signs for a modest room or two of exquisite Vogue pictures and iconic portraits.

In the end I think I actually took more pleasure in leafing through the fashion books in the gift shop than I did in the exhibition.
