Born on this day – Edward Steichen

‘When I first became interested in photography, I thought it was the whole cheese. My idea was to have it recognised as one of the fine arts. Today I don’t give a hoot in hell about it. The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each man to himself. And that is no mean function.’

Edward Steichen (Luxembourgish American photographer, painter and curator) – March 27, 1879 – March 25, 1973.
