The Early Years
Joel Smith

Book Description

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Beautifully illustrated. . . . The author's tightly written text is presented with thorough and pertinent notes and will contribute to readers' enjoyment and appreciation of Steichen's brilliant images and career. A welcome and important addition to the field and highly recommended for all levels of readers."--Choice

"This definitive edition includes all of Steichen's New York photographs. . ."--Laura Cumming, The Evening Standard

"Steichen's famous images of New York's Flatiron buildings are illustrated with four examples to reveal the unique quality of each of his prints. In a lesser book, four images of the same subject might be gratuitous, but in this case each work complements the next. . . . [There is] only one image printed per spread, a luxury that is justified by the quality of the artwork and the fine printing."--Stephan F. F. Jost, The Art Book

"The near-facsimile quality reproductions of early photographs by Steichen in duotone and full colour, printed on acid-free paper and enlivened by a fascinating, meticulously researched and readable biographical account of his activities, concerns and achievements from 1899 to 1924, demonstrate a benchmark standard of excellence in academic publishing."--The Art Newspaper

A definitive collection. . . ."--Geoff Dyer, The Independent
