A compact survey of photographs by Edward Steichen, whose career spanned well over half a century

Overview

Edward Steichen had the rare ability to turn his talents to almost all genres of photography with resounding success. 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.

The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an affordable pocket format. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series has been awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.
