My focus today is on the late great American photographer named Irving Penn. For many years, he did fashion photography for Vogue magazine. During his time at Vogue he was known for "glamour photography. (His photographs appeared on over 150 covers in the last 50 years.) Penn was also known for his amazing photographs shot against simple white or gray backdrops. He had a way of making the subject pop. The result-amazing photographs. His images seem effortless and are absolutely timeless. He also focused on still life photos, which are filled with beauty and elegance. Irving Penn passed away at the age of 92 on October 7th, 2009. He was one of the 20th century's most influential photographers.

Josef Hoflehner is an Austrian photographer who is well known for his black and white landscape images. He was also voted Nature Photographer of the year in 2007. I was looking for photographs by Josef Hoflehner and I was in awe. I love black and white photography and you know this is my weakness! He has amazing nature photos and these aren't your average nature shots of tree bark and spiders. He captures moments that people pass by and beautiful serene places. He just happens to be at the right place at the right time. For example the Air France Airbus A340-300 that had a super low arrival into the Charles De Gaulle airport.
