In this magazine cover released by the Conde Nast Archive, the April 1, 1950 cover of "Vogue" with photography by Irving Penn, is shown. Penn, whose photographs revealed a taste for stark simplicity whether he was shooting celebrity portraits, fashion, still life or remote places of the world, died Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2009, at his Manhattan home. He was 92.

I'm really sad. He was one of my favorite photographers ever. His aesthetic was out of this world

yes i think think belongs to their property,they have a conde nast store that sells this kind of things:fashion photos,illustrations and so on..but IMO the problem is not where to buy it,is whether you're $$$ enough to buy it!
