Edward Steichen was already a famous painter and photographer when, in 1923, he was offered one of the most prestigious and most lucrative positions in photography - that of chief photographer for Condè Nast's Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Over the next fifteen years, Steichen produced an oeuvre of unequalled brilliance, dramatizing and glamorizing contemporary culture and its achievers - in politics, literature, journalism, dance, theatre, opera and, above all, the world of high fashion. This volume presents a comprehensive selection of Steichen's famous and rarely exhibited Conde Nast photographs.
