"Life is a coherent whole: rocks, clouds, trees, shells, torsos, smokestacks, peppers, are interrelated, interdependent parts of the whole. Rhythms from one become symbols of all. The creative force in man feels and records these rhythms, these forms, with the medium most suitable to him."
Nathan Lyons, "Weston on Photography," in Beaumont Newhall and Amy Conger, eds., Edward Weston Omnibus, (Salt Lake City: Peregrine Smith Books, 1984), 170.
