Edward Weston was born in 1886 in Highland Park, Illinois, outside of Chicago. One of photography's most widely exhibited and collected photographers, he began his career as a door-to-door portrait photographer in California in 1906. After having lived in Mexico City in the early 20s, where he ran a studio with apprentice and lover Tina Modotti, he returned to California permanently and began the work for which he is most famous: natural form close-ups, nudes and landscapes. Weston died in 1958 in Carmel.

Edward Weston & Harry Callahan: He, She, ItEdward Weston & Harry Callahan: He, She, It

Published by La Fábrica/Fundación Banco Santander.
Edited with text by Laura González Flores.

This book compares the portrait photographs of two American masters, Harry Callahan (1912–1999) and Edward Weston (1886–1958), examining how their images combine desire and affection. While many of their well-known works have been understood as straightforward nudes or landscapes, this book looks beyond the limitations of these categories to suggest a more complex notion of their erotic photography. He, She, It looks at Callahan and Weston’s images through an examination of the relationship of the body and nature, but also, that of photography and affection. Unlike the majority of erotic photography that seeks to represent desire, in both Callahan and Weston we find the rare instance of desire wholly transformed into an image--an image where the subject is clearly not just displayed but the affection of the photographers toward the subject is clearly evident. For this to occur, there must be complicity between the photographer and his model. It’s clear that these are not anonymous and interchangeable models in these images but women whose bodies are evidently loved by the photographers: Tina and Charis in the case of Weston, and Eleanor in the case of Callahan. This emphasis makes this selection of photographs all the more intimate, and all the more deeply erotic.

Edward Weston: Nudes

Published by Aperture.
Text by Charis Wilson.

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, nudes and landscapes. This volume celebrates Weston's nudes, 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.”

The Daybooks Of Edward Weston

Published by Aperture.
Foreward by Beaumont Newhall.

For more than 15 years, Edward Weston kept a diary in which he recorded his struggle to understand himself, his society and his art. His journal has become a classic of photographic literature. Weston was a towering figure in twentieth-century photography, whose restless quest for beauty and the mystical presence behind it resulted in a body of work unrivaled in the medium. John Szarkowski observes that “It was as though the things of everyday experience had been transformed... into organic sculptures, the forms of which were both the expression and the justification of the life within... He had freed his eyes of conventional expectation, and had taught them to see the statement of intent that resides in natural form.”

Edward Weston: Portraits

Published by Aperture.
Photographs by Edward Weston. Text by Susan Morgan, Cole Weston.

This monograph is the first published collection of Edward Weston's finest portraits. It shows the artist at this most inspired: vigorously rendering “the very substance, the deeper inner image” of sons, lovers, friends and fellow artists, with such immediacy that they linger in our mind's eye long after viewing. In his lifetime, Weston's photographs were first published in Aperture in 1952. In 1958, upon Weston's death, Nancy Newhall brought his pictures together in a single landmark issue that became known as “The Flame of Recognition.”

Edward Weston

Masters of Photography Series

Published by Aperture.
Photographs by Edward Weston.

A towering figure in twentieth-century photography, Edward Weston sought to lead viewers to “see through their eyes, not with them.” His restless quest for beauty and the mystical presence behind it created a body of work unrivaled in the medium. This book offers Weston masterpieces spanning more than four decades. Included are his early Pictorialist images, industrial studies of Armco Steel, portraits from his Mexican period, the still lifes and landscapes of the 1930s and the sometimes acerbic images of the later years. R.H. Cravens's essay draws upon Weston's writings and recollections by sons, lovers and friends. What emerges is the profile of “a thoroughly American genius--courageous, pure, troubled, unorthodox and utterly sure of its purpose.”

Edward And Brett Weston: Dune

Published by Wild Horse Island Press.
Essays by Kurt Markus, Charis Wilson and John Woods.

Dune collects, for the first time, the sand dune photographs of both Edward and Brett Weston, two giant names in modern photography. Previously, their remarkable dune photographs--dramatic abstractions of light and shadow and sensuous shape--were featured as samples in overview publications on the artists, just a picture here and there. This lush volume brings together father and son in a personal, unique fashion, showcasing the photographs each made in the same locations. Adding depth is an original essay by Brett Weston's longtime friend, traveling companion and biographer, John Charles Woods. Woods' intimate, forthcoming narrative describes what it was like to accompany the younger Weston into the dunes and what his habits and personality were like. Charis Wilson, Edward Weston's one-time wife, excerpts a passage from her acclaimed book Through Another Lens, in which she tells of a 1936 trip she and her husband made to the dunes of Oceano, California. Also included are correspondence between father and son, and excerpts from Edward Weston's daybooks.

Edward Weston: The Last Years In CarmelEdward Weston: The Last Years In Carmel

Published by The Art Institute of Chicago.
Essay by David Travis. Foreword by James N. Wood.

This book appears in conjunction with an exhibition organized by The Art Institute of Chicago that focuses on the late work of photographer Edward Weston. Taken between1938 and 1948, these images reveal his shift from his formalist style, characterized by technological virtuosity and innovative compositions, to one that accommodated a greater psychological component. The first photographs of this period date from Weston's return to his spiritual home near Carmel, California, during his second Guggenheim fellowship. He now saw the surrounding coast with different eyes: while he had once focused on details and still lifes, he now found himself drawn to vistas, horizons, the movement of water, and moody atmospheres of elemental power. The seventy-plus photographs in this book, sumptuously printed in tritone reproductions, include--in addition to his images of nature--Weston's powerful portraits of his immediate family, as well as domestic scenes taken in and around his home. Also included is a critical essay exploring Weston's life and work during this period, by David Travis, Curator of Photography at the Art Institute and a longtime specialist in the career of Edward Weston.
