Edward Steichen, William A. Ewing

Description

Handsome and collectible, the books each contain full-page duotone and/or color reproductions, plus a critical introduction and a bibliography.

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.
