1 Review
One of modern photography's greatest pioneers, Edward Weston-whose work includes indelible images of nudes and peppers, rocks and shells, clouds and landscapes-awakened his viewers to the sensuous qualities of organic forms. In his extensive biography of Weston, which was nominated for a National Book Award, Ben Maddow draws heavily from Weston's uncut journals and letters, and from the reminiscences and written accounts of his closest friends and family, to reveal the man and artist behind the seemingly opaque formalism of the photographs.
