Edward Weston was born in Highland Park, Illinois, in 1886, and began his career as a door-to-door portrait photographer in 1906. After a spell in Mexico City during the early 1920s–where he ran a studio with Tina Modotti–he moved to California and commenced the work for which he is most famous: close-ups of nature, n u d e s and landscapes. This volume celebrates Weston’s n u d e s, of which Hilton Kramer wrote: “To Weston’s eye… the landscape of the human body was an unending revelation of forms both voluptuous and abstract. His genius as an artist lay in his ability to respond to both with equal passion.”
