Edward Steichen : Go For Me
Have you ever wanted to go to an art show or exhibit so bad that you urged everyone person you know to go for you? Well this is my current position. Since I am currently operating in Boston, Massachusetts, for a while, any chances of me seeing the exhibit of painter and photographer, Edward Steichen, are slim to none. His work is currently on exhibit in Milano, Italy at the Galleria Carla Sozzani. Steichen’s work will be on display until (February 12th), so if you are oh so fortunate and in passing, it will be well worth it to stop at Carla Sozzani Galleria. I’ve been a big fan of his work for about five years. After stumbling upon Steichen work in my History of Film and Fashion course, I made a conscious effort to add him to my repertoire of fashion photographers and painters. Many people associate Edwards as being one of the earliest modern photographers. Steichen’s exceptional composition and exploration of unconventional lighting and scenery paved the way for today’s top fashion photographers like, Bruce Weber, David LaChapelle, Patrick Demarchelier, and the late great Herb Ritts.
