Edward Steichen was born in Luxemburg before moving to New York where he became an internationally renowned photographer, painter, gallery owner and museum curator. Steichen was first and foremost an artist. He didn’t take photos, he composed comic strips. Greta Garbo, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, Marlène Dietrich and Franklin Roosevelt posed for him. BOZAR takes a closer look at his oeuvre and gives the exhibition a contemporary perspective with works by four laureates of the Edward Steichen Award.
