The Palazzo Grassi in Venice presents “Irving Penn, Resonance”, the first major exhibition dedicated to the American photographer Irving Penn (1917-2009) in Italy. The show runs until 31 December 2014. Curated by Pierre Apraxine and Matthieu Humery, it brings together 130 photographs, taken between the end of the 1940s and the mid-1980s.

Part of these photographs comes from. Kuniko Nomura’s collection, which was assembled in the 1980s with the help of Irving Penn himself. He indeed put together photographs that could sum up his work in a complete and coherent way.
