Edward Weston
American, 1886–1958
Follow

One of the most influential American photographers of the 20th century, Edward Weston is known for his richly detailed and precisely composed black-and-white images of semi-abstract nudes, landscapes, and organic forms including close-up studies of shells, vegetables, and rocks. During a trip to New York in 1922, Weston had a formative encounter with the photographer Alfred Stieglitz; shortly thereafter he traveled to Mexico with his student and mistress Tina Modotti, where he met the artists Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. By the spring of 1929 he began to photograph Point Lobos in Carmel, California and developed the style that would distinguish his practice, favoring sharp contrasts and a full tonal scale. He became a founding member of the group f/64 in 1932 along with fellow California photographers Imogen Cunningham and Ansel Adams, who together advocated for un-manipulated, sharp-focus photography. “To record the quintessence of the object or element before my lens, rather than an interpretation, a superficial phase, or passing mood—this is my way in photography,” he once said.
