"Photographing a cake can be art. "

There is a memorial to Irving Penn (1917 - 2009) inside of room 209; where the sculpture books were displayed. He died on Wednesday at the age of 92.

He was a profoundly prolific photographer in the fashion world as well as the fine art one. NYT and NPR have scrolling images of his work. His absence is already felt.
