Bee-Stung

Irving Penn and Sean+Seng

Irving Penn’s expansive oeuvre is comprised of masterful fashion, celebrity and still-life photography built over an outstanding seven decade career. Towards the end of the photographer’s enduring career, Penn would produce a greater number of beauty shots and still-lifes, such as his 1995 image Bee (A), a variant of the more well-known imageBee on Lips. Perhaps contributing to the debate on Lana Del Rey’s suspiciously plump lips, of which she denies artificial enhancement, photographer team Sean+Seng photographed a bee perched on Del Rey’s full lips for Interview Russia’s February 2012 issue, much like Penn’s famous image.
