When we visited the Getty a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of wondering through the many rooms of Irving Penn's work.  They were the images of people of all walks of life dressed in their work clothes from London, New York and Paris.  It was an amazing show; hundreds of images stacked salon style and each one of them commanding your attention for its details, or its humor or its mystery and all shot in a purely unadorned, naturally lit studio with a large format camera. 
I was saddened to see that Irving Penn died today at 92.
