Edward Weston: Nudes
by Edward Weston
Publisher's Description
The nude was always a primary subject for Edward Weston, beginning in his early pictorial period and continuing until his last years of active work. One of his most well-known models, the poet Charis Wilson (Weston), contributes her account of their years together.
Amazon.com Review
Lee Friedlander's photographs of women in their birthday suits leave me cold, but they invite comparison with Edward Weston's classic black and white nudes. Bare breasts and buttocks took on another dimension when Weston was behind the camera; his headless torsos more closely resemble the work of painters and sculptors than the passionless images of ladies decapitated by Friedlander and other contemporary photographers. Charis Wilson's memoir of posing for (and living with) Weston--and her under-the-skin take on the thought process behind his nude studies--is fascinating.
