Like many of the significant photographers of the 1930s, Steiner studied at the Clarence White School of Photography in New York in the 1920s. Other alumni in this exhibition include Paul Outerbridge, Dorothea Lange, Doris Ulmann, and Margaret Bourke-White. The school spread the doctrine of modernist photography, and was the main conduit for its introduction into American advertising. Guest lecturers included Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand. These avant-garde visual strategies found their way, through pupils like Steiner, into American homes via the pages of popular magazines such as Ladies’ Home Journal, Fortune, and Life.
