Yves Saint Laurent by Irving Penn2016-04-13T10:41:48+00:00

Project Description

Yves Saint Laurent’s shyness is commonly known. In portraiture, people expect to recognize a face. Here Penn captures Saint Laurent like a shy child, revealing just one eye. A juxtapose of the incredible fame and talent of the man, the band and lore that is Yves Saint Laurent. The composition commands you see more, forcing the viewer to look into his eye, his soul.
