Torso is a selection from Edward Steichen: The Early Years Portfolio, 1901–1927. This hand-pulled dust-grain photogravure is printed by master photogravure printer Jon Goodman.
Edward Steichen is an immortal among photographers. His richest, most profound photographs were made between 1900 and 1927. It is from this period that Steichen selected his masterpieces and asked Aperture to publish his prints as hand-pulled photogravures—the finest of all methods of reproduction.
