Few pho­tog­ra­phers have had a ca­reer to match Irv­ing Penn. He started work for Vogue in 1943 and shot his 165th cover for the mag­a­zine in 2004, just five years be­fore his death. Some 240 of his pieces go on show in Ber­lin this month, from ab­stract works to por­traits of Pi­casso (right) and other leg­ends.

MAKE IT HAP­PEN

The Irv­ing Penn Cen­ten­nial runs 24 March– 1 July 2018 at C/O Ber­lin (£9; co-ber­lin.org). Just one block away from the gallery, near Kur­fürs­ten­damm, Ho­tel am Stein­platz is an Art Deco jewel that rein­ter­prets the Ber­lin of the 1920s (from £175; ho­tel­stein­platz.com).
