Although Brett Weston had a prolific 68-year career of major one-man
exhibitions and has been the subject of five books, none ever attempted
a chronological overview of his development as an artist. Brett
Weston: Master Photographer is a comprehensive examination of
Brett Westons life in photography from 1925 to 1988. It provides
an overview of Westons aesthetic contribution from his first
precocious images in Mexico to new photographs completed just before
press time. This oversized edition addresses the six decades of
Westons working life through a selection of 15 corresponding
photographs each accompanied by an essay authored by a distinguished
writer, such as Beaumont Newhall and Van Deren Coke. A final presentation
of new images (completed after 1986) is introduced by Weston himself.
This is the most comprehensive overview currently available on the
life and photography of Brett Weston.
