Edward Steichen in High FashionDPMag Published in Blog
I was recently fortunate to visit Kansas City's Nelson Atkins Museum of Art and its traveling exhibit, Edward Steichen: In High Fashion. The beautiful collection focuses on Steichen's celebrity portraiture and fashion photography during the 1930s when he was chief photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair. What struck me was how timeless many of his images are, and how photographers today can still learn from Steichen's work. It’s amazing what he achieved with relatively rudimentary equipment more than 80 years ago. The exhibit has been traveling for more than a year, and no additional stops are yet on the calendar. So if you can't hurry to Kansas City before the end of the month, you'll have to settle for learning about Steichen and his work online. The Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography has a nice writeup of the man and his work, as well as a fairly robust image gallery on its web site. The Art Gallery of Ontario has a very nice selection of audio podcasts with exhibit curators discussing specific selections from Steichen's portfolio.
