Weston Died in 1958, in Carmel California. He
was one of the legends of American photography,
and one of several major figures who began working
in the pictorialist mode only to become dissatisfied
and develop a more hard-edged and realist style.
Weston’s subjects were mainly landscapes, nudes,
and still lifes of shells or peppers, and his
prints are renowned for their finely controlled
and subtle tonalities.
