Irving Penn will be on display until May 26 at 229 Hamilton Ave, Palo Alto.

On April 10, Pace Gallery Palo Alto held an opening reception for Irving Penn, an exhibition featuring the photographer’s work at the height of San Francisco’s counterculture movement in the 1960s. Using his Rolleiflex camera, Penn captured the characters of the time in all of their complexity. His black and white shots of hippies and Hell’s Angels still move a mass audience.
