During his lifetime Edward Weston (March 24, 1886- January 1, 1958) revolutionized photography by taking unadulterated pictures of his subjects. Stark Beauty captures Weston much in the same way the artist captured the world through his lens.
Three sections represent the most iconic aspects of Weston’s work: portraits of his beautiful muses and famous contemporaries, vast American landscapes depicting the United States in unaltered focus and reality, and close-ups which find beauty in the forms of man-made objects, vegetables, and the bare human body.
