Published on the occasion of a major traveling exhibition, Edward Weston: Life Work is a 110-photograph survey of this great American artist. Containing photographs from all phases of Weston`s long and varied career, from his first nude in 1909 to his final landscape at Point Lobos, California, in 1948, previously unpublished masterpieces are interspersed with his well-known signature images.
Never before have Weston`s photographs been reproduced with such fidelity to his originals. For those who have not had the opportunity to see original prints by Edward Weston, but who know his photographs only through reproduction, this book will come as a revelation. In keeping with Weston`s adherence to the contact print, the photographs are reproduced actual size, and on two different paper stocks and multiple ink colors to reflect Weston`s choice of papers and finish. Printed in Belgium by Salto in a combination of 600-line screen quadtone and tri-tone plus two-color for Weston`s early platinum prints, Edward Weston: Life Work is a landmark in the publishing of fine-art photography books.
