The "In High Fashion, the Condé Nast Years, 1923-1937" exhibition, presenting works by Edward Steichen, was produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis. It includes over 200 unique, vintage photographs, taken for the magazines Vogue and Vanity Fair, which have been brought together especially for the exhibition.
Edward Steichen (1879-1973) was already a famous painter and photographer when, in 1923, he became chief photographer for the influential and well-regarded magazines Vogue and Vanity Fair. For the following 15 years, Steichen showcased the culture of that era, as well as the most prominent exponents in the fields of literature, journalism, dance, sports, politics, theatre and film.
In addition to breath-taking fashion pictures, from Worth and Poiret to Chanel and Schiaparelli, the Steichen archives at Condé Nast include portraits of Greta Garbo, Cecil B. DeMille, Winston Churchill, Marlene Dietrich, George Gershwin, Frank Lloyd Wright, Amelia Earhart, Walt Disney and hundreds of other celebrities.
