The family of man : the photographic exhibition by Edward Steichen( Book )

115 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in English and held by 3,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conceived as an exhibition for MoMA in New York in 1955, with a catalogue published both by Maco Magazine Corporation and Simon and Schuster, The Family of Man has been heavily criticized, usually for its sentimentality and its disingenuous simplicity. Although indeed sentimental, The Family of Man was not as simple as it looked. ... The de-politicization of the photography was in fact a calculated piece of political image-making, stating that American values were the only universal values, and that the world could be one big happy family under the beneficent guidance of Uncle Sam. ... One of the ironic aspects of the project is the way its whole aesthetic derives from those German and Soviet exhibitions and propaganda books of the 1930s. The sententious tone, the grim determinism, the tendentious ideological stance, even the design, place The Family of Man in the propagandist mode of modernism rather than in the utopian wing to which it nominally aspires. Nevertheless, and this is an important point, it contains many fine photographs."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004

Real fantasies : Edward Steichen's advertising photography by Patricia A Johnston( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1920s and 1930s, Edward Steichen was the most successful photographer in the advertising industry. Although much has been said about his fine-art photography, his commercial work - which appeared regularly in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Ladies' Home Journal, and other popular magazines - has not received the attention it deserves."--BOOK JACKET. "In this book, Patricia Johnston uses Steichen's work as a case study of advertising photography as it developed in the consumer culture between the wars. She traces the evolution of Steichen's work from an early naturalistic style through increasingly calculated attempts to construct consumer fantasies. Steichen's work convinced advertising agents that photography was a far more effective medium for engaging and persuading consumers than the more traditional drawn illustrations."--BOOK JACKET. "Johnston presents an intriguing view of advertising agencies from the inside. Using agency archives, she reconstructs the teamwork of clients, art directors, account executives, copywriters, and photographers. And she goes on to assess how these widely distributed images work in American culture - how they interact with their audience to express, reflect, shape, and challenge social values."--Jacket
