Riassunto: A towering figure in twentieth-century photography, Edward Weston sought to lead viewers to "see through their eyes, not with them." His restless quest for beauty and the mystical presence behind it created a body of work unrivaled in the medium. This book offers Weston masterpieces spanning more than four decades. Included are his early Pictorialist images, industrial studies of Armco Steel, portraits from his Mexican period, the still lifes and landscapes of the thirties, and the sometimes acerbic images of the later years. R. H. Cravens's essay draws upon Weston's writings and recollections by sons, lovers, and friends. What emerges is the profile of "a thoroughly American genius--courageous, pure, troubled, unorthodox, and utterly sure of its purpose."
Born in 1886 in Highland Park, Illinois, Edward Henry Weston began to photograph in 1902. In 1906 he decided to move to California and take up photography professionally. In 1937 Weston was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, the first ever for a photographer. He continued to photograph until 1948. Thereafter, until his death in 1958, he supervised the printing of his best work by two of his sons, Brett and Cole, and Dody Warren.
