Publisher's Description
Surveying the Weston family’s diverse pictorial output across generations
Designed in collaboration with the Weston family, A Dynasty of Photographers spotlights more than 80 works by the four photographers, allocating half of the space to the lustrous black-and-white pictures of Edward Weston (1886–1958), the first to take up the practice. Almost all of Edward’s best-known masterpieces feature, from his textural portraits to his nudes, sand dunes, plain objects transformed into sculptures—and, of course, his iconic “vegetables,” the pepper, artichoke, cabbage and shell close-ups that cemented his place as a master of modernist photography.
Alongside Edward’s works, the book includes a selection of images by his son Brett (1911–93), who captured landscapes through geometric forms that evoke abstract art; his other son Cole (1919–2003), who distanced himself from his father through the use of color; and his granddaughter Cara (born 1957), who offers a contemporary twist on refined black-and-white photography.
