Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture or interview on Phototuts+.

Widely regarded as the most influential photographer of the 20th century, Eduard Jean Steichen was born in Luxembourg in 1879. He worked in every aspect of photography, fashion, industrial, nature, combat, portraits, and many area of fine art. He also curated the famous "Family of Man" exhibition, which first was shown in 1955 in New York City.

You can see a gallery of Steichen's portraits at the National Portrait Gallery website.
