Uncompromising Passion: The sensuality and straight photography of Edward Weston

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.
