Edward Weston, Amy Conger
Die Form des Aktes
HC 29,5 x 29,5 cm
Phaidon 2005

The essay by Amy Conger concentrates on the relationship between Edward Weston's nudes and his work in other genres such as still-life. Throughout the book, the juxtaposition of Weston's still-lifes and landscapes with his various nude studies highlights the continuities which are evident in Weston's photography - regardless of actual subject matter - and which Conger attributes to Weston's overwhelming fascination by form. This new approach to Weston's work, illustrated with many beautiful and striking images, renders this book an absorbing document for the specialist, as well as an accessible introduction to the work of Weston.
