The @metmuseum is currently hosting a retrospective of the great Irving Penn. In my early modeling years I had gone to his studio with my portfolio several times to be hired but, to my dismay, he never did. Years later I told Anna Wintour about it so she sent me to his studio to be photographed for a story @voguemagazine was doing on me as an author of "Some of Me", my fictional memoirs. Mr Penn, as he liked to be called, said to me, "Don't do any modeling in front of my camera. I'm photographing you as a writer, not as a model." I was a bit lost. What did he mean by wanting to photograph me 'as a writer'? What do writers do, anyway. These sort of questions thrashed around my brain but I was too embarrassed to ask Mr Penn for a clarification of his directions. I tried my best to appear "writerly." Here is the result 😳??!#@*?!
