Overview

Irving Penn Regards the Work of Issey Miyake displays the wordless harmony of the artistic relationship between Irving Penn, one of the great photographers of the twentieth century, and the designer Issey Miyake, one of the few figures to have taken clothing design into the realm of art. For more than a decade and across different continents, the work of one has provided a mirror for the work of the other. Miyake offers Penn the forms and textures that have been the substance of much of his long career. Penn's photographs allow Miyake to look again at his designs as if they were completely new. This is an invaluable representation of the intuitive partnership between two artists that Miyake describes as a "silent understanding."
