Steichen in Color: Portraits, Fashion & Experiments by Edward Steichen

Author(s): Edward Steichen

Photography SPECIALS

This title includes an introduction by the curator of photographs at George Eastman House. Edward Steichen was one of the world's greatest photographers, celebrated for his stunning black-and-white images, particularly his Family of Man exhibition. Less well-known, however, was that he was an innovator in the field of colour photography. This exceptional volume pays tribute to Steichen's rare and in some cases never-before-seen colour work. It features an essay by his wife Joanna that offers a personal and candid perspective on his role as artist and visionary and showcases 48 eye-opening photographs, all gorgeously reproduced in a museum-quality monograph.
