GALLERY TALK - Wednesday, September 19, 1pm, Professor Brittany Nelson 

The exhibition presents more than 120 photographs by Edward Weston (American, 1886-1958). Ranging in date from 1903 to 1946, the exhibition includes his earliest photographs with later works from his career, demonstrating similarities as well as refinement in subject matter, style, and aesthetic exploration. Comparing Weston’s photographs created when he was a teenager through his early 20s with his later masterworks, it demonstrates the evolution of his singular vision, finding essential forms in his subjects and perfecting his hallmark sense of composition.
