Weekly Giveaway – You mean he worked in advertising too??

Yep, Edward Steichen, the curator of the Family of Man exhibit. The most well attended photography show EVER. And a master photographer.

Suprised? Don’t be. You know that throughout history, most major artists had a career in commercial art.
And there is a lot of great art that is commercial in nature. Or was commissioned. Like the Sistine Chapel for example. Heck, photographs of Kate Moss just went for a bundle. Art and commerce. Linked like the paternal twins they are.

So this week, in honor of the Cannes Lions Festival which just concluded a week of celebrating the world of advertising, we bring you a book of the little known commercial work of Edward Steichen entitled: Real Fantasies

And to get a free copy of this book all you have to do to be eligible, is to be signed up for the weekly NEWSLETTER. Info is on the HOME page.
Real Easy. No hard questions or puzzles. And we ship ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!
On Weds. morn at 9:00am PST, a little note will enter your email with full details.
Then it’s just a game of numbers. Speed and Numbers.

We just like sharing. And knowing what you like best so we can deliver that for you here.
Everyones a winner.

And we did have a winner on the 4GB LEXAR CF Card:
Congratulations to Richard P. of Indian Hills,CO !

Cheers!
