Few photographers have created such a legacy as Edward Weston (1886-1958). After a decade of successfully making photographs with painterly soft-focus techniques, he became the driving figure behind a group of West Coast artists dubbed Group f/64, which pioneered the sharp, precise school of "Straight Photography." With that stylistic leap, Weston's career moved into high gear, creating photographs of extraordinary sensual realism, perfectly poised between compositional stillness and searing intensity.

With nudes, nature studies, and myriad perspectives on the dramatic Californian landscape, Weston's works aimed to locate the "very substance and quintessence of the thing itself." In this concise monograph, we gather some of the finest Weston works to explore how he pursued and achieved this aim whether with a landscape, shell, or naked body.
