He was born in 1879 in Bivange in Luxembourg, and he went with his family, at the age of two, to the United States. At sixteen, he discovered artistic photography and, at twenty-one, was noticed on the occasion of “The New School of American Photography” exhibition.

He was spotted by the photographer Clarence White, and was immediately recommended to Alfred Stieglitz who wasted no time in buying a few of his snaps. In 1900, Edward Steichen undertook a stay of a few years in Paris and discovered the European avant-garde. He took the opportunity to visit the Universal Exposition and discovered the works of Auguste Rodin. Impressed by the sculptor’s talent, he decided to meet him in Meudon.
