New York Still Life (Elements of a Party) for Vogue, 1947


"...whereas with the apples and pears we have an absolutely submissive subject: we can place them as we wish,
and they will stay there, slumping only very slowly. It is in fact their submissiveness that makes them difficult.
It is said that Cezanne (I think) would arrange the fruits with his hands behind his back, facing away from the table,
in order to overcome the natural tendency of fruit, dead fish etc., to arrange themselves in conventional compositions."


John Szarkowski writes in the foreword of Still Life: Irving Penn photographs.
