If you are not familiar with the name  Edward Steichen  (1879 – 1973) you are missing the joy of looking at some of the most wonderful photos of the 20th Century. Steichen is recognized as one of the greatest photographers in history. Some claim that he is THE photographer of the 20th Century if not the best ever.

Instead of posting a few of his photos here I give you a link to a  YouTube video showing some of his photos from the early part of his career. This video is about 8 minutes in length.
