Edward Steichen: “the sweet simple things in life”

Dover Beach

Edward Steichen

“The boy and girl going hand in hand through a meadow; the mother washing her baby;
the sweet simple things in life.  We have almost lost track of them.  On the one side,
we over-intellectualize everything; on the other hand, we are over-mechanized.
We can understand the danger of the atomic bomb, but the danger
of our misunderstanding the meaning of life is much more serious.”

– Edward Steichen
