Irving Penn’s Dripping Diamonds
Irving Penn’s still lifes are lean and meticulously organized. His photographs are arranged with an incredible attention to detail. Penn experimented with many techniques, but his black and white prints are particularly notable for their clean, crispy look.
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then Penn’s Faucet Dripping with Diamonds is definitely our favourite work of art!
