Book Description 
  
For more than ten years there has been an extraordinary collaboration between Irving Penn, one of the great photographers of the century, and the designer Issey Miyake, one of the few figures to have taken clothes design into the realm of art. "Penn's photographs allow me to see my own designs," claims Miyake. These photographs define Miyake's work on the printed page.  
  
 
  
Miyake's astonishing forms and textures have offered Penn subjects that echo both a primitive tribal beauty and the most futuristic fashion. As the century draws to a close, the barriers that traditionally separated East and West are diminishing. The sources for inspiration for both men are global, stretching from Africa to Miyake's Japan. This book is a culmination of a certain period in their creative lives.  
  
 
  
Irving Penn's reputation as a photographer was established with an extensive body of portraits, still lifes, and some of the most important fashion photographs of our time. He produced his first color photograph, a still life for the cover of Vogue, in 1943. Between 1967 and 1971 he traveled to Dahomey (Benin), Nepal, Cameroon, New Guinea, and Morocco with a portable photographic studio. Many of the resulting portraits were published in Worlds in a Small Room in 1974. His other books include Moments Preserved (1960), Inventive Paris Clothes 1909-1939 (1997), Flowers (1980), and Passage (1991). A retrospective of his work was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1984. In 1997, the Art Institute of Chicago mounted an exhibition that then traveled to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg (1998) and continues on a world tour. RND
