From the text-

"This catalogue and exhibition represent discrete selections of Irving Penn's portraits. As a body of work, they stand beside his noted still lifes, ethnographic studies and nudes. Many of the same formal and physical qualities shine throughout all of Penn's work: precise, sculptural compositions; the exquisite use of shadow; and the luminous richness of the prints themselves, whether platinum or gelatin silver. All of these qualities make the portraits the vivid, energy-filled images that are reproduced here."
