Irving Penn
I remember looking at Irving Penns work whilst I was at college, what I like about his work were the subtle differences, that set him apart from other photographers, the left wires you could see and the rough but at the same time luxurious finish to the photos. I also loved how he would collect things that he would find on the street and the photograph them turning the unwanted into the admired and maybe even the wanted must have item.

The last image is from Penns “Findings” collection of work, did you notice straight away that they were fag ends?
