Lot Essay

In 1988…Anna Wintour decided to shift Penn from fashion to beauty and still life…. But he was at a point in his career when, as [fashion editor Phyllis] Posnick says, “he didn’t have to do another picture. So he only wanted to do pictures he felt strongly about. I was lucky in that respect because, although it made it more difficult, he would only do things where he thought he could get a memorable image.” Vince Aletti
