Irving Penn's photograph of Alfred Hitchcock was taken in 1947 and published in American Vogue on 15 February 1948. It is a fine, cool and dispassionate image of the great master of suspense, showing him, as often in Penn's photographs, sitting nowhere, perched on a pile of industrial carpet and only half-concentrating on the camera.
