Saturday June 7th, 5pm – $10/$5 members

 Join us for an illustrated conversation with Laurie Winfrey Shnayerson who represented the estate of renowned photographer Edward Steichen for 24 years and continues as an advisor.

Edward Steichen pioneered world recognition of photography as art.  Spanning the late 19th and much of the 20th century, he began with portraits of artists and writers, flower portraits, and landscapes.  One of his earliest pictures (The Pond, Moonrise, 1904) became the world’s most expensive photograph when in 2006 itsold for $2.9 million.

As Director of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, he created “The Family of Man“, the groundbreaking 1955 exhibition that traveled the world, opening millions of eyes to the power of photography.

WAAM Dialogues are made possible with support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Milton & Sally Avery Foundation
