Editorial Reviews


"This monograph does honor to one of photography's key influences and honors photography itself in sparing no pains to achieve reproduction quality that rivals the original print. This level of excellence is a rare occurrence in the reproduction of photographs in American publications.

Aside from the beauty and brilliance of the letterpress reproductions, this book offers the reader, collector and student of photography, an extraordinary opportunity to study a representative body of Weston's life-work in the perspective of an extensive and illuminating collection of his photographs."--The New York Times

"It is a measure of Edward Weston's greatness that he--it seems to me more than any other photographer of his time--escaped the confinement of photographic categories and movements and theories (even his own theories), and produced a body of work for which there was no explanation. . . . Weston's real aesthetic philosophy was a simple and functional one: he photographed clearly what he saw life to be. What he saw made him a nature poet, a transformer of commonplaces into wonders, a fantasist, and a discoverer of seminal form."--John Szarkowski, former Director, Dept. of Photography, Museum of Modern Art

"Working so directly and clearly with his 8x10 camera, Edward Weston has given us a unique beauty which we have no more today."--Alfred Eisenstaedt
