Edward Steichen: lives in photographyUser Review - Book Verdict
This impressive, large-format book provides a broad, in-depth study of the life and works of Edward Steichen (1879-1973), one of the most talented and prolific photographers in American history. It traces Steichen's career from his early years as a Pictorialist to his stunning success as a commercial photographer, curator of the brilliant "The Family of Man" exhibition, and director of photography at the Museum of Modern Art. Editors Brandow (curator & director, Fdn. for the Exhibition of Photography) and Ewing (director, MusÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½e de l'Elysee, Lausanne) have done an admirable job of selecting and arranging the images and contributions from many other scholars. They also include comprehensive biographical essays about and critiques of the work of this legendary photographer as well as a detailed chronology. Most impressive, however, are the more than 250 lovely reproductions, many printed in four colors to capture the subtleties of Steichen's classic works. One of the finest photography books published in many years; highly recommended for all libraries.-Raymond Bial, First Light Photography, Urbana, IL
