Ralph Steiner is known for his contribution to modernist photography and American avant-garde cinematography. He studied at the Clarence H. White School of Photography in New York City before becoming a commercial photographer.
Typewriter Keys, 1921 reflects Steiner’s particular interest in mechanical objects, which culminated in his 1930 film Mechanical Principles.
The Radical Eye exhibition at Tate Modern displays Sir Elton John’s private photography collection. These rare photographic prints are taken from the classic Modernist period of the 1920s through to the 1950s and include such famous artists as Alexandr Rodchenko and Man Ray.
