In Focus: Edward Weston: Photographs From the J. Paul Getty Museum
by Brett Abbott
Publisher's Description
Edward Weston (1886-1958) helped define twentieth-century American photography. Weston wed machine-age aesthetics with vernacular subjects, pursuing Modernism as a way of seeing. He produced works of art using subject matter as wide-ranging as sea shells, green peppers, sand dunes, and nudes, and he set a standard for elegant composition and print technique for generations of photographers. The more-than-fifty works included here were made in Claremont, Glendale, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and other locations in California and the U.S. Includes commentaries on all of the featured works, an introduction, a chronology, and a transcription of a colloquium on the photographer's life and work. Brett Abbott is a curatorial assistant in the Getty Museum's Department of Photographs.
