Edward Steichen (1879-1973) is unquestionably one of the most prolific, influential, and indeed controversial names in the history of photography. He was admired by many for his achievements as a fine-art photographer, while impressing countless others with the force of his commercial accomplishments. The influence of his legendary exhibition, The Family of Man, is still felt. This volume traces Steichen’s career trajectory from his Pictoralist beginnings to his time with Condé Nast through his directorship of photography at the Museum of Modern Art. Hundreds of his photographs are reproduced in stunning four-color to reveal the complexities and nuances of these black-and-white images. Essays from a range of scholars explore his most important subjects and weigh his legacy. Contributors include A. D. Coleman, Joanna T. Steichen, and Ronald Gedrim. With a full bibliography and chronology, this is the most complete and wide-ranging volume on Steichen ever published.
William A. Ewing was Director of the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne from 1996 to 2010. His many publications on photography include The Body, Face: The New Photographic Portrait and Arnold Newman: Masterclass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning A must have. A photographic genius' collection. Mostly his early work. Not very many of his fashion photos. Still superior eye candy.
