The Steerage by Alfred Stieglitz
Not all people travel around the world for glory or fame, not all of them explorers who search for the last frontier. Most of them are ordinary people, who embark on a voyage launched by hope. To search for something better, for a promise, for a new life. And to leave behind a heartbreak, an unbearable situation, to forget, to never look back.
The Steerage by Alfred Stieglitz has become the symbol of such travels. The picture shows passengers from the third class on board of a ship. It has become an icon for the 20th century human movements. Movements that shaped our globalized multicultural world we live in today.
