A great art book to go along with the definitive biography 4 May 2008
By A Connecticut Reader - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Until now, it has been impossible to find an art book that complements the extensively researched biography of Edward Steichen written by Penelope Niven some ten years ago. "Edward Steichen: Lives in Photography" remedies this situation with brilliance and dash. It explores the work of this great American artist with lively and detailed precision, capturing the high exuberance of his work and his many-faceted personality in essays that are carefully dovetailed with the greatest photographs in Steichen's oeuvre. All elegantly printed with no costs spared. To learn more about the artist's long and fascinating life, purchase "Steichen: A Biography" by Penelope Niven. To understand his art, purchase "Lives in Photography." With these books on your library shelf, you will have a better idea of just why this great artist has such staying power.

More than just another retrospective 31 Mar. 2008
By Alex Lublin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Edward Steichen had a long (94 years) and storied life, however until now it was difficult to find a book that exhibited his work and gave a clear understanding of both his work and influence on: Art, Fashion, Marketing, War, Curating, Botany, and (of course) Photography. Through the text of this, rather large, book one can learn about an influential and very controversial (as most artists often are) man. Of course this book has numerous beautiful plates (Which is expected in the world of printing today). However, unlike many photo books this one is an interesting read. While, some of the writing may seem exuberantly adoring of Steichen, this can be easily understood after learning of his impact on the art world. After reading this book it is hard to believe that this is the first comprehensive book on Steichen since Steichen himself wrote "A life in photography" in 1963. Overall an excellent book for anyone interested in photography.

Excellent. 8 Nov. 2010
By Andrey B. Vorobyov - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very good book!
The reproduction quality is a bit worse that in the second book
"Edward Steichen: In High Fashion - The Conde Nast Years, 1923-1937"
but my understanding is that this volume appeared earlier, a sort of first try.
Some photos also appear in both volumes, that is also understandable.
Nevertheless the book is a must have for those who likes the work of E.Steichen.
Many thanks to all the editing team for both volumes!

Steichen the Master 28 April 2008
By B. K. Wunder - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Edward Steichen: Lives in Photography is a wondrous collection of some of the finest work by one of this nation's finest photographers. The images should prove inspirational to any who aspire to creating art with a camera. Steichen never succombed to the post-modern faux-artistry and its glorification of the bizarre and twisted. This book is simply fabulous.
A beatfully produced book 9 Dec. 2011

This as a wonderful book, well written, with excellent reproductions that should be on the list of every person interested in photography. It's shows the energy and creativity that a purposly driven artist can accomplish.
