Edward Weston (American, 1886-1958)

Edward Weston developed a realist style through the distillation of form and clarity of vision, which became a hallmark for modern photography. After living and working with artists of the Mexican Renaissance from 1922 to 1926, the photographer returned from Mexico City to California, where he created his greatest work in the history of photography. Weston's mastery of craftsmanship within the medium and in creating the fine print established a high standard attained by few artists in the twentieth century.
