He produced portraits, landscapes, still lifes and nudes, and demonstrated his talent photographing fashion, dance, theatre, flowers and commercial images, as well as in war and aerial photography. With Alfred Stieglitz he helped set up the Photo-Secession group and the journal Camera Work. In 1923, Condé Nast were sufficiently impressed by his pictorialist photos to make him art director of Vogue and Vanity Fair. Steichen became one of the leading figures of modernism. He also served as photography curator at New York's MoMA, where he organised the famous exhibition The Family of Man.
