For the last thirty years, Steve Eichner has been a fixture of the New York City fashion industry. As staff photographer for Women’s Wear Daily from 1997-2016, Steve has captured on camera over forty New York fashion weeks and attended an incredible twenty-one Met Galas. His pictures have been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily, Newsweek, Time, Rolling Stone, People, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, W Magazine, Details, and GQ.
After arriving to Manhattan in 1986, Steve’s easygoing attitude and keen photographic eye landed him at the center of New York’s social elite with a job as Peter Gatien’s exclusive house photographer to his club empire. Tasked with producing press packages on each venue’s celebrity clientele, Eichner acquired an extensive and unprecedented archive of pictures documenting America’s cultural environment during the 1980s and ‘90s.
Steve is currently spending time in Puerto Rico enjoying his surfing hobby, working on his archive and planning a new photography/technology venture to be announced.
