EDWARD WESTON - RETROSPECTIVE
All the subjects investigated by the photographer will be covered, from nudes to landscapes through a gallery of portraits and "objects" transformed into surrealist and postmodern icons.
Often compared to painting and sculpture, Weston’s art is the expression of a stubborn search for purity, in the forms of composition as well as an almost obsessive perfection in pictures. The author investigates the objects in their essence, associating them with visual metaphors of the same elements of nature.
Edward Weston (Highland Park, Illinois, 1886 - Wildcat Hill, California, 1958) is among the greatest American photographers of the twentieth century. Founder in 1932 along with Ansel Adams and Imogen Cunningham of the Group f/64, he was among the main promoters of "straight photography". Key figure in the promotion of the artistic use of photography, Weston was the first photographer to receive a research grant from the Guggenheim Foundation and in 1946 his work was presented in a large retrospective at MoMA in New York.
