Steichen was amazing in his ability over the years to work in significantly different styles. My favorite is his even earlier "pictorialist" portraiture. I can't remember the name of the book, but it was in the rare book case of a particular bookstore with a price of around $700, so nothing I could afford, but did contain some of the most compelling portraiture I've ever seen, most of which I've never seen anywhere else with regard to Steichen's own work.
