    Steichen lived in Paris in the pre-war years and supervised aerial photographic operations for the U.S. Army in France during the war. He remained in France until 1923, traveling frequently to New York, where this picture was made. "Dana and the Apple, New York" is a charmingly fresh and vivacious portrait of the young actress Dana Densboro Glover, whom Steichen married the following year. The image is a two-color carbro print and it shows Steichen’s continued interest in non-silver pigment processes, which he had employed in his earlier work, and that he would later use in his celebrity portraiture and fashion photography.
