Steichen In Color

New York : Lewes : Sterling ;  2010. 1st Edition. 

Edward Steichen was one of the world's greatest photographers, celebrated for his stunning black-and-white images, particularly his Family of Man exhibition. Less well-known, however, was that he was an innovator in the field of colour photography. This exceptional volume pays tribute to Steichen's rare and in some cases never-before-seen colour work. It features an essay by his wife Joanna that offers a personal and candid perspective on his role as artist and visionary and showcases 48 eye-opening photographs, all gorgeously reproduced in a museum-quality monograph.
