Edward Weston Photographs | East Gallery


Among the twentieth century’s most influential art photographers, Edward Weston is widely respected for his many contributions to the field of photography. Along with Ansel Adams, Weston pioneered a modernist style characterized by the use of a large-format camera to create sharply focused and richly detailed black-and-white photographs.

The combination of Weston’s stark objectivity and his passionate love of nature and form gave his still lifes, portraits, landscapes, and nudes qualities that seemed particularly suited for expressing the new American lifestyle and aesthetic that emerged from California and the West between the two world wars. He spent the years 1923–1926 in Mexico City as a part of an international milieu of creative minds attracted by the post-revolutionary excitement of political activists and artists such as Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, Tina Modotti, and others. From the moment he returned to the United States, he began making work that would fundamentally change the direction of photography in this country.

Gene Sasse: Black & White | collection gallery


Photography enables me to show the world what I see and a diary of where I have been and what I have seen. Photography is storytelling; stories can transport us — not only to another place, but inside another person’s life or take us on an intimate view of the structure of a flower.

Photography is probably is not different from other types of art, because people understand this is the artists’ vision. With photography most people view photography as reality, but in essence it’s the photographer interpretation of reality. I can change the interpretation or the story of a photograph by what I include or exclude in the image. to see more
