Edward Weston – Peppers (partial) 1929

Toronto. Edward Weston (1886 – 1958) was a famous American photographer. in 1973 I bought a coffee table sized book celebrating 50 years of his work including a biography written by Ben Maddow and published by Aperture Books. The 285 page book was published on fine quality paper and reproduced a selection of his work at the highest printed image standard. Hard to imagine such quality today, especially when the book cost $25 at the time.

Weston was as notorious for his affairs (like that with photographer Tina Modotti) as he was famous for his photographs. Do a search online and learn more about this accomplished American photographer and his most famous works.
