After the publication of Edward Steichen: In High Fashion – The Condé Nast Years, 1923–1937 in 2008 and the subsequent International Center of Photography Edward Steichen exhibition in 2009, Smithsonian magazine said that while the Luxembourg-born photographer may not have invented fashion photography, “he created the template for the modern fashion photographer,” with a precise eye for lighting and composition. Steichen (1879–1973) began his career in Paris as a painter and photographer before falling into fashion photography in New York, where he shot for publications like Vanity Fair and Vogue. Danziger Projects presents a collection of 84 of his photos—including portraits of Amelia Earhart, Fred Astaire and Martha Graham—through October 29.

This is an excellent exhibit- tomorrow’s the last day and I urge everyone to see it. Steichen’s compositions were (for his time) very innovative and compelling to see in person, many of the portraits were timeless and simply stunning. A beautiful lunch break away from the PDN PhotoPlus Expo today!
