i love edward steichen’s work. i flipped through a new monograph that we carry in our store last night and today and it is GORGEOUS. just sharing him with the world in case you’ve never heard of him. google it. also, on an art historical note, steichen’s self-portrait above was an attempt to justify photography as an art medium by portraying himself as the typical artist and applying brushwork to the rough print to ally his work more closely with what people of the time considered high art. so, there’s your nerdy moment for the day.
