Summary
In this archival NBC program, Edward Steichen - renowned American photographer and curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art - sits for a 1955 interview coinciding with his exhibit entitled "Family of Man" and the museum's 25th anniversary. The conversation takes place in a workroom at the museum. Steichen reflects on his career, which focused on painting for several years until he branched into photography. He describes sitting in his studio outside Paris in 1920 and seeing a copy of one of his paintings, made by a gardener. Believing the copy to be superior, he then devoted himself to the camera and set about shooting still life set-ups until he had mastered light and shadow. Additionally, Steichen shares his thoughts on war photography and his beliefs about the human experience, which led to "Family of Man."
