The History Channel via truveo.com offers a 1m:41s clip "Edward Steichen on photography as an art form". Truveo says: "Edward Steichen, born in Luxembourg on March 27, 1879, is credited with transforming photography into a recognized art form. Brought up in Michigan and Wisconsin, Steichen was trained as a commercial lithographer and painter, but his true interest lay in photography. In 1902, Alfred Stieglitz, the best-known American photographer of the day, invited him to New York to found Photo-Secession, an organization dedicated to promoting photography as a fine art. Steichen and Stieglitz were largely successful in winning respect for their medium and also promoted other European modern art at their influential gallery. During World War I, Steichen was a photographer for the U.S. Army and innovated aerial photography. By the war's end, he had become a dedicated proponent of realism, and he burned all his paintings as confirmation of his confidence in photography's ability to achieve that end. Between the wars, he was New York's leading portrait photographer, and his pictures from that period now form a vital record of American culture. In 1948, he began a fifteen-year tenure as director of the department of photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He died in 1973".[Link found to be expired as of 2015 audit.
