FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - More than 200 celebrity and fashion
photos by one of the 20th century's most influential photographers
are on view in an exhibit that started out in Europe.
"Edward Steichen: In High Fashion, the Conde Nast years,
1923-1937," is showing at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale
through April 11.
It features images of actresses and models wearing fashion's
finest clothing, many of them looking straight into the camera
under dramatic lighting.
The photos are drawn from Steichen's (STY-ken) years as chief
photographer for "Vogue" and "Vanity Fair" magazines. The
magazines were published by Conde Nast.
Many of the black-and-white original vintage prints are of
celebrities of the day.
