Edward Steichen's photograph of Marion Morehouse (Mrs e.e. Cummings)

This is surely an amazing moment in time! The photograph by Edward Steichen, the model is Mrs ee Cummings: Marion Morehouse; and the dress is by Louis Boulanger, and taken in 1926.

Even the beginning of the awakening in Art Nouveau, however magnificent and iconoclastic at times, doesn't compare in my opinion.

BTW:Thanks to Gatochy on flickr for the shot...

 and the delights of an image which just gets everything right in the fashion
 and photography stakes. And that's not even talking about the movement/dance 
Spiritual and physical expression!

I find this photograph quite hypnotic in its silvery beauty. It reminds me of a mystical
or sacred vision of some kind. It evokes quiet and profound thoughts and feels dreamy and
