Book Description

15 Sep 2008
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 Condé 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 Condé Nasts influential magazines will stand forever among the most striking creations of 20th-century photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to love 17 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover
This book is a joy to own and explore. The photographs are beautiful as might be expected, but the text is also satisying and informative. Each section has depth and insight. Buying this book was pure self-indulgence on my part but I'm so glad I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not like the original photo 22 Aug 2013
By Fiona
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having seen the exhibition Edward Steichen: In High Fashion in FOAM (Amsterdam), this book is a nice reminder. But the photos in the book don't have the same quality as the originals. They are less bright, there is less contrast in them. If you have the chance, go and see the exhibition. It is still on in Amsterdam until the beginning of september 2013. But it will show up somewhere else in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 3 April 2009
By R. Gale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an outstanding book, and really shows how Steichen contributed so much to what we think of as fashion and glamor photography. The reproduction of the photos is excellent. Because these photos originally appeared in magazines, I would bet that they look better here than they did in those original publications. There's not a lot of text, but what there is is certainly informative and interesting. Highly recommended!

By Andrey B. Vorobyov - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Magnificent photos, outstanding reproduction quality (quadro-tone).
The articles are informative and short, as it should be.
It is extremely interesting what the one of the best pictorialist of the world (may be the best one) could do in fashion. Highly recommended!
