Packaged Food as Still Life

Frozen Foods with String Beans by Irving Penn, New York ,1977, Dye transfer print

I admire the clever simplicity of this still life photograph by Irving Penn.  I have been going through books from the library on his work, and Penn had a varied career.  I was familiar with his portrait photography, but Penn also did artistic, experimental, fashion and product photography.  He had a very active career and left the world a diverse body of work.
