Worlds in a Small Room. Photographs and text by Irving Penn ("as an ambulant studio photographer"). Grossman, New York, 1974. 95 pp. First edition. Quarto. Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust. Numerous black-and-white illustrations.

"Beginning in 1948, when he photographed the Peruvian Indians in Cuzco, Penn has traveled the world to compile these 'records of physical presence.' He has set up his 'ambulant studio' on the edges of the Sahara, among gypsies in Span, in the highlands of New Guinea, in the mountains of Nepal--and has invited the inhabitants to step, for a moment, out of their worlds and into a new one. This new world, neutral territory for both photographer and subject, would serve as a meeting ground for nothing less than an intensely human encounter..."--from the jacket copy
