From Library Journal
Weston, who lives near Carmel, California, worked as his father Edward's assistant from about 1946 on, when the latter was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. He printed his father's negatives from Edward's death in 1958 until 1988, when he began to devote full time to his own color photography. The results are presented in this first retrospective by a gifted teacher (he has conducted over 100 workshops in the United States and Europe) and a widely exhibited artist (having to his credit 60 shows since his first in 1971). About three-fourths of these 8 x 10 color negatives were exposed in the last five years and printed by Weston, who achieves an uncommon intensity of color (especially vibrant greens) not found in the work of his contemporaries. His photographs of seascapes, landscapes, nudes, industrial ruins, and flora and fauna capture design found in nature: line, form, pattern, light, and color. Weston's life experiences--as a parent, actor, director, sailor, aviator, and son and brother to more famous photographers--inform every image. Recommended for photography and art collections.
