EDWARD STEICHEN

I just caught the Edward Steichen exhibit at the Whitney Museum. The show features a small selection of Steichen’s fashion, portrait, and advertising work from the 1920s and 30s when he was the chief photographer for Condé Nast. His portraits of that era’s luminaries, including Marlene Dietrich, H.G. Wells, Vita Sackville West, and Maurice Chevalier, illustrate his gift for sophisticated, powerful images that are timeless.

Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s is at the Whitney Museum of American Art through February 23rd, 2014
