“a beautiful, absorbing study of animal skulls from the collection of the Narodni National Museum in Prague”
Cranium Architecture sees Irving Penn create a beautiful, absorbing study of animal skulls from the collection of the Narodni National Museum in Prague. From gorilla to giraffe, the photographer treats each subject with fastidious equality, abstracting the objects and challenging the viewer to look at them in a different way.
As is often the case Penn has, through his remarkable skill and sensibility, transformed still lives into sublime and enlightening physiognomic portraits.
Published in collaboration with the Irving Penn Foundation - and with an essay by Francis Hodgson - this book accompanied the exhibition Irving Penn: Cranium Architecture at Hamiltons Gallery in 2013.
