Edward J. Steichen (March 27, 1879 – March 25, 1973) was an American photographer, painter, and art gallery and museum curator. He was the most frequently featured photographer in Alfred Stieglitz' groundbreaking magazine Camera Work during its run from 1903 to 1917. Steichen also contributed the logo design and a custom typeface to the magazine. In partnership with Stieglitz, Steichen opened the "Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession", which was eventually known as 291, after its address. This gallery presented among the first American exhibitions of (among others) Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, and Constantin Brâncuşi. Steichen's photos of gowns designed by couturier Paul Poiret in the magazine Art et Décoration in 1911 are regarded as the first modern fashion photographs ever published. Serving in the US Army in World War I (and the US Navy in the Second World War), he commanded significant units contributing to military photography. He was a photographer for the Condé Nast magazines Vogue and Vanity Fair from 1923–1938, and concurrently worked for many advertising agencies including J. Walter Thompson. During these years Steichen was regarded as the best known and highest paid photographer in the world. Steichen directed the war documentary The Fighting Lady, which won the 1945 Academy Award for Best Documentary. After World War II he was Director of the Department of Photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art until 1962. While at MoMA, in 1955 he curated and assembled the exhibit The Family of Man. The exhibit eventually traveled to sixty-nine countries, was seen by nine million people, and sold two and a half million copies of a companion book. In 1962, Steichen hired John Szarkowski to be his successor at the Museum of Modern Art.

Edward Steichen fue un fotógrafo, nacido el 27 de marzo de 1879 en Luxemburgo; falleció el 25 de marzo de 1973 en West Redding, Connecticut.

En 1881 emigra con su familia a los Estados Unidos de América, donde su padre encontró trabajo en una mina de cobre. Tomó su primera foto en 1895 y posteriormente fue miembro del Photo-Secession, (club de fotografía artística) y uno de los mayores representantes del Pictorialismo. Durante la primera guerra mundial se dedicó en ella como fotógrafo. Más tarde trabajó para las revistas de moda Vanity Fair y Vogue y durante la segunda guerra mundial dirigió la sección de fotografía de la US-Marine y posteriormente dirigió la sección de fotografía del Museo de Arte Moderno de Nueva York (MoMA).

Su aportación más importante a la fotografía es la exposición The Family of Man que realizó para el MoMA.

El 14 de febrero de 2006 se subastó en Sotheby's, Nueva York, una de sus ampliaciones, titulada "The Pond-Moonlight" de 1904, cuyo valor ascendió a 2,928 millones de dólares (2,46 millones de euros). Siendo hasta entonces el valor más alto ofrecido en subasta por una fotografía.

Hola, creo que esta foto "Vanity Jean Harlow" no pertenece a Edward Steichen.

Un saludo.
