Edward Steichen One of the great American photographers whose work I discovered whilst living in New York. Edward Steichen: i like this example because portraits started to tell a story not just be a photograph. What others are saying. Edward Steichen, Princess Youssoupoff, I thought this might be one of those "royal skeletons in a royal closet"--a male cross dresser among the blue bloods whose hidden pics got circulated. Princess Irina Alexandrovna Youssoupoff - only niece of Tsar Nicholas II. Picture by Edward Steichen.

Edward Steichen was a key figure of twentieth-century photography, directing its development as a prominent photographer and influential curator. Steichen came to the United States in 1881. He painted and worked in lithography, before undertaking photography in 1896, and first exhibited photographs at the Philadelphia Salon in 1899. Steichen became a naturalized citizen in 1900 and after exhibiting in the Chicago Salon, he received encouragement from Clarence White, who brought him to Alfred Stieglitz's attention.

Edward Steichen (1879-1973) had the rare ability to turn his talents to almost all genres of photography. Art and industry, fashion and beauty, celebrity portraits, landscapes and cityscapes, nudes and dancers―his legacy remains omnipresent. It was Steichen's curious and inventive mind that made this diversity possible, as he ignored established dogma to carve out his own unique path. This book presents the best of his work from a career that spanned well over half a century. 64 photographs in color and duotone

CONVERSE
HISTORIC PHOTOGRAPHY....
Bolanim
When I first became more serious about learning photography some 30 or so years ago, I meandered through the art's history with mild appreciation but I was more interested in really learning all about the "new stuff" rather than spend time with the old. Now that I have what I'd like to consider a repectable degree of professional skill in the medium, I find myself drawn on a pilgrimage to once again meet and now better appreciate the true Masters who made an art out of what was otherwise simply considered as a new method of "recording" things and events.

This book is a great collection of this man's work and this photographer is definitely understated in history. It is not until you realize the extent of his "portfolio" as well as his life's later achievements all having been created with a technology that was still very much in a daily self-discovery mode does the word "Wow!" jump from your mouth !!

Read about this man if you love the art !
