Renowned for his arresting portraits and still-lifes, Penn has photographed for Voguefrom the 1940s to the present. A Notebook at Random presents a novel and informative retrospective of his life's work. Many of his signature pieces are here, but along with them are test prints and sketches from his personal notebooks, providing a fascinating look at his process and inspiration. Also included are reproductions of his textured and sophisticated paintings, which are at once a nod to and a departure from his photographic work. This handsome, oversized
monograph showcases Penn's incessant creativity and darkroom experimentation, giving a fuller understanding to his talent, innovation, and contribution as an exacting technician and an adventurous artist.
