The family of man : the greatest photographic exhibition of all time, 503 pictures from 68 countries by Edward Steichen( Book )

29 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 1,636 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

Steichen at war by Christopher Phillips( Book )

12 editions published between 1981 and 1987 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographs by Steichen and his crew of photographers in the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit: Wayne Miller, Horace Bristol, Victor Jorgenson, Fenno Jacobs, Barrett Gallagher, Charles Kerlee, and Paul Dorsey. For four years, Steichen and his hand-picked crew of professional photographers joined the air craft carriers, recording the battle against the Japanese in the Pacific, as well as several ventures in the Atlantic. At Steichen's urging, they focused on the sailor and showed the war close up, sending back to Washington countless rolls of film with powerful images--the launching of the torpedo-bombers; terrifying kamikaze attacks; young pilots debriefing after exhausting missions; deck and support crews on shipboard relaxing, exercising, preparing for action. Steichen edited their work, saw that it was printed to the highest standard, and released it to major magazines and newspapers. Steichen himself went out for tours on the USS Lexington and other ships, ans was on Iwo Jima soon after the island was secured. His men were also on the island bases from which Marine pilots launched their crushing strikes; they were in Washington when FDR died, and photographed the tearful progress of his funeral cortège; they were in Tokyo when the gaunt but joyous American prisoners were released; and one of them was among the first photographers into the devastated city of Hiroshima at war's end.--adapted from book jacket
