Outerfocus 18 - Edward Steichen-fo realsies (Melissa Breyer)


’When I first became interested in photography I thought it was the whole cheese, my idea was to have it recognised as one of the fine arts. Today I don’t give a hoot in hell about it, the mission of photography is to explain man to man and each man to himself, and that is no mean function.’’ Edward Steichen  Welcome to the Outerfocus Podcast! This week we are joined by street photographer, Melissa Breyer from New York. We chat to Melissa about her career journey delving into how and why she went from painting student to photographer. We also hear about Melissas writing and managing editor role at Treehugger as well as details about her upcoming book. With a packed show last week, we decided to look more a bit more at Edward Steichen. Born in Luxembourg in 1879, and later emigrating to America Steichen was known not only for being one of the first modern fashion photographers, but was also known for opening the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession, later to be known as 291 with Alfred Stieglitz. We take a look at his early life, his work and more.  Links: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Steichen F1 Photographer using 4x5 View camera Guest Links: http://www.melissabreyer.com https://www.instagram.com/melbreyer/ https://www.treehugger.com/author/melissa-breyer/ Host Links: https://www.outerfocuspodcast.com info@outerfocuspodcast.com https://www.instagram.com/f8kym/ New York - Saul Leiter  (Louis Vuitton) <-------click book for purchase info Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/outerfocuspodcast)
