Edward Weston - Church Door, Hornitos, 1940. Silver Gelatin Print - 7.5 x 9.5.
Weston's first photographs captured the parks of Chicago and his aunt's farm. 30 pages, 31 unnumbered pages of plates : 25 x 26 cm Presents thirty-two color images chosen from approximately sixty transparencies produced by photographer Edward Weston between 1946 and 1948, near the end of his career, and includes essays that discuss his relationship with the Eastman Kodak Company in the advent of color film, and Weston's original 1953 essay "Color as Form." Edward Weston truly deserved the tag of 'Icon' derived from the series title. He was the equal of Ansell Adams, who also deserves the accolade but whose works are largely controlled by a Trust that bears his name and probably not therefore available to this publisher, who was a generation younger and lived for about 30 years beyond him.
