Irving Penn X Issey Miyake

The visual dialogue between Irving Penn and Issey Miyake is currently exhibiting at the 21_21 Design Site building in Tokyo Midtown. 

The two met in 1983 when Penn first photographed Miyake's work for Vogue. Over the next 26 years they continued to collaborate as Penn would photograph Miyake's designs twice yearly, for the F/W and S/S collections. Miyake never once was present during these photography sessions, thus allowing the creative freedom seen captured.
