Irving Penn Dies at 92

Irving Penn died today at the age of 92. The obit in the New York Times is long and detailed. For years I've had a subscription to Vogue for one reason only and that was to see the intermittent Penn photos. (To their credit, the editors did seem to try to get him in as often as possible.)
