Edward Weston

Edward Weston was born in 1886 in Highland Park, Illinois, outside of Chicago. One of photography's most widely exhibited and collected photographers, he began his career as a door-to-door portrait photographer in California in 1906. After having lived in Mexico City in the early 20s, where he ran a studio with apprentice and lover Tina Modotti, he returned to California permanently and began the work for which he is most famous: natural form close-ups, nudes and landscapes. Weston died in 1958...See more
