Edward Steichen (March 27, 1879 – March 25, 1973) was an American who was a pioneer in Photography. Photography has been through many struggles to be recognised as an Art form but with the work of Photographers like Steichen, it was seen that Photography was indeed ‘art’. Steichen worked across many genres of Photography including nature, celebrity, architecture, fashion, advertising, war, and social commentary. He was also an accomplished painter, museum curator, and flower geneticist.
