EYE CANDY

Irving Penn’s Head Shots


Irving Penn was known for seeing beneath the surface of his subjects, but in “Cranium Architecture,” a show of the late photographer’s exquisite studies of animal skulls on view at London’s Hamiltons Gallery, he literally gets under their skin.

“Cranium Architecture” is on view through September 13, 2013, at Hamiltons Gallery, 13, Carlos Place, London.
