A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Edward Steichen was chief photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair from 1923 to 1937. During that time, he produced work of unequalled brilliance, putting his exceptional talents to work dramatizing and glamorizing contemporary culture and its achievers in politics, literature, journalism, dance, theatre, opera and, above all, the world of high fashion. This beautifully produced book reproduces the best of Steichens images, all drawn from Conde Nasts archive of more than 2,000 original vintage prints. Until now, no more than a handful of these prints has been exhibited or published. The 1920s and 1930s represent the high point in Steichens photographic career, and the work he did for Conde Nasts influential magazines will stand forever among the most striking creations of 20th-century photography.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The most extensive collection of Steichen's legendary Vogue and Vanity Fair work ever brought to the public.

Edward Steichen was already a famous painter and photographer in America and abroad when, in early 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. Here are iconic images of Gloria Swanson, Gary Cooper, Greta Garbo, and Charlie Chaplin as well as numerous other celebrities drawn from an archive of more than two thousand original prints. 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 twentieth-century photography. 242 illustrations
