Edward Steichen: In High Fashion, The Condé Nast Years, 1923-1937
By Edward Steichen, William A. Ewing (Author) and Todd Brandow (Author)
The most extensive collection of Steichen's legendary Vogue and Vanity Fair work ever brought before the public. Edward Steichen was already a famous painter and photographer in America and abroad when, in 1923, he was offered the most prestigious position in photography's commercial domain: that of chief photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair. Over the next fifteen years, Steichen would produce a body of work of unequaled brilliance, dramatizing, and glamorizing contemporary culture and its achievers in politics, literature, film, sport, dance, theater, opera, and the world of high fashion. Until now, no more than a handful have been exhibited or published in book form. The photographs of the 1920s and 1930s represent the high point in Steichen's career and are among the most striking creations of 20th century photography.
