When visiting the Irving Penn exhibition in her leisure time, Ruby Richter, year 9 student, had a sudden inspiration to take a portrait photo of her grandmother. She shared her independent project with me and I asked her to present her idea to the school community.

The photograph I took of my grandmother is inspired by Irving Penn’s work “Girl with tobacco on her tongue”, originally from 1951. I call mine “Girl with tobacco on her tongue 50 years later”. Irving Penn is a very inspiring photographer and I find his work highly impressive. Recreating one of his works was quite tricky because it was vey easy to miss little details, like the position of the fingers or the angle of the head but all in all I think my grandma and I did a pretty good job.
