Edward Steichen - My Heroes (cont.)

One of the giants of American photography Steichen was also a painter and a museum curator. Perhaps best known as the creator of "The Family of Man", his influence can be seen in every area of modern photography.

In February of 2006, Steichen's early pictorialist photograph,
The Pond-Moonlight (1904), reached the highest price ever paid for a photograph at auction in the U.S., $2.9 million. To learn more click here.
