In this emotional and heartfelt iconic photographer keynote, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, discusses the impacts Iriving Penn had on the fashion industry. Recognized as a visual genius, Penn died in 2009, leaving the photography and fashion world devastated.
The iconic businesswoman's speech also reflects on the extent to which the modeling, fashion and magazine industries have changed since the time Penn began shooting for Vogue. Models used to iron their own clothes, do their own hair and apply their own makeup; now, it seems the entire process has become productionized.
Wintour then recognizes how he set the bar so high for the magazine and the industry. He made every staff member -- every editor, writer and photography -- better at what they did because of his expertise and talent. He changed the landscape of what was defined as beautiful as well as the lens through which many saw the world.
Anna Wintour's iconic photographer keynote pays tribute to an artistic genius and reflects on the evolution of the worlds of fashion and print.
