New York Times Art Critic Roberta Smith reviews four concurrent exhibitions at ICP, including "Edward Steichen: In High Fashion: The Condé Nast Years, 1923-1937."

Fashion Forward (Not for the Fainthearted)

There are days when it seems as if you've been subscribing to all the wrong fashion magazines. A little bit of your world crumbles, or maybe a lot.

A visit to the International Center of Photography may cause such a day. The center is inaugurating a year of fashion photography exhibitions called "2009 Year of Fashion" with four synergistic exhibitions. They culminate in an engrossing survey of pictures from Edward Steichen's years at Condé Nast (1923-37), when that pioneer photographer more or less invented fashion photography and celebrity portraiture.

Read the complete review in The New York Times.
