Edward Steichen was a master of photography and he used to work for Condé Nast magazines.
So Moda Operandi and Condé Nast Archives are collaborating to let us purchase some of the iconic and vibrant portraits he did in the twenties and the thirties.
Here are some of the greatest actresses (with a legendary actor), as they posed for the camera of a master, at this time when artists knew how to speak with only their face and their body.
GLORIA SWANSON (Vanity Fair, February 1928)
POLA NEGRI (Vanity Fair, June 1925)
GARY COOPER (Vanity Fair, February 1930)
JOAN CRAWFORD, wearing Schiaparelli (Vogue, October 1932)
HELEN MENKEN (Vanity Fair, January 1926)
You may pre-order these pictures (and some other more) before next Thursday, September 13th, at 11pm.
The selection and process of printing have been supervised by Vogue Photography Director, Ivan Shaw.
