Fashion Photography by Irving Penn

{images via}

"A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart, leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective." – Irving Penn (1917-2009)

I'm drawn to those images because of its simplicity, serenity, and sophisticated elegance exquisitely balanced by the neutral soft backgrounds. They are extreme high fashion yet seem to me somewhat at ease, far from tensity or awkwardness.
