9780893816476: Edward Weston: Portraits

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."

About the Author:

Although revered for his vibrant still lifes and haunting California landscapes, Edward Weston spent the major part of his career, from 1917 to 1948, perfecting a standard of photographic portraiture that has rarely been surpassed. Weston's timeless images of the fascinating people who crowded the canvas of his free-spirited life- among them, Robinson Jeffers, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Tina Modotti, Igor Stravinsky, James Cagney, Lincoln Steffens, D.H. Lawrence, Carl Sandburg, e.e. cummings, and Dorothea Lange-comprise a startling 70 percent of the photographer's oeuvre

Susan Morgan is a contributing writer at Elle and Mirabella and the author of the 1992 Aperture monograph Martin Munkacsi.
