During the last period of Edward Weston's work, roughly 1938 through 1948, he began to feel the effects of aging and of Parkinson's disease. He had returned to Carmel and Point Lobos, a place that had been the source of many of his most famous images. His (second) marriage to the much younger Charis Wilson was failing, his sons were serving in a war that closed Point Lobos for a time to Weston's photographic forays, and he was battling symptoms of depression, undiagnosed at the time. All contributed to a significant change in his photographic vision. His last landscape images were psychologically darker and less formalistic than those produced earlier in Carmel, and his nudes featuring Wilson were also more somber. After 1948, Weston stopped taking photographs but continued hosting friends and students until his death on New Year's Day, 1958. This is the first book to examine Weston's last body of work, so different from the images that made him famous. Travis, curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, demonstrates his considerable skill with this series of chronologically organized essays and 108 reproductions, published to accompany a traveling exhibit. The illustrations are excellent, as are the essays. Recommended for fine art and photography collections. Kathleen Collins, Bank of America Corporate Archives, San Francisco

…his later pictures…are more complex and satisfying…. …the virtuoso performances of an artist totally confident in his mastery of form.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
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.
