Description
Brett Weston first began photography at age thirteen while on a trip to Mexico with his father, modernist photographer Edward Weston. His intuitive sense of abstraction and high contrast black-and-white images characterize his distinctive style of work throughout his seventy year career. Weston is able to transcribe the negative space he finds in nature and architecture into the forefront of his photographs in a way that highlights the purest form of his subjects.
