    A time travel through history through the lens of his life photos Almost Forrest Gump like as Steichen found himself involved with so many other famous people through history 2 world wars, etc I was only expecting a book filled with examples of his photography and was happily surprised to find his story leading off each section of pictures A great way to spend an afternoon.

    A world class tour through the eye and mind of one the world s great photographers Great images of his transformative images as well a definitive early history of the NY, Paris worlds of photography as well as World War I

    The Annie Liebowitz of his time Great photos of celebrities, not just Hollywood but also musicians, authors, poets, to say nothing of his capturing daily life.
