Born in Luxembourg, Edward Steichen is considered as one of the most important photographers of our era. In 1955 he created the The Family of Man exhibition, this was a manifesto for peace and equality.
The collection comprised 503 photographs from 273 post-war photographic artists from 68 countries.
The exhibition was subsequently staged in more than 150 museums around the world and attracted 10 million visitors.
The collection includes photos from artists such as Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Robert Doisneau, August Sander and Ansel Adams. The exhibition has been added to UNESCO's Memory of the World Register.
