Small Trades, by Irving Penn

January 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

Irving Penn started the small trades project in Paris in 1950 while he was working for vogue magazine. In between fashion shoots he found time to capture disappearing occupations. Inspired by the old ways of people whose era was almost over he created an amalgam of portraiture, fashion and documentation. He continued the series the September of the same year in London and later in New York.
