This photo by Irving Penn just about kills me. After his wife, and model, Lisa Fonssagrives passed away, he made a series of self portraits where his face is fractured and disconfigured. Reading a lot about Irving Penn, he seems like the quintessential well-rounded, happy, amazing guy and their relationship the same-- so this photo really breaks my heart. It's hard to say certainly because there are so many I enjoy, but I think Irving Penn might be my favorite photographer. Here is an enchanting picture of Irving and Lisa!
