Amazing find.

I popped into a library thrift store with my dad yesterday, and this was buried under a pile of romance novels and encyclopedias. For only 8 DOLLARS. Awesome.

The three hundred page book is filled with images from my favorite photographer, Irving Penn. The book may as well be called 'Images from 100 Years of Irving Penn's Vogue'. Every black and white image gives me chills. All cliches aside, the work that Penn created during his life truly is an inspiration. I was very sad when he passed away in October.

I will post some particularly inspiring pages soon.
