Irving Penn: Worlds in a Small Room, Seen & Unseen will feature a powerful retrospective of Penn’s ethnographic studies, which illustrate the diversity of Irving Penn (1917–2009) and his work. Following a long-established tradition of ethnographic photography, Penn abandoned the tradition's passivity and instead applied his own unique approach. The photographs on view highlight Penn’s purposeful engagement with his subjects and his exacting attention to detail. A stark contrast from his personality portraits, the photographs in the exhibition are drawn from the images made from his travels to Peru, Dahomey, Morocco, and New Guinea.
