Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now releasing at a price affordable for every fan, this lavish hardcover book with cloth cover and foil deboss contains 125 of Weston's well-known images and many lesser-known gems. Additionally, a detailed introduction, along with reproductions of many unseen photographs and ephemera help round out this ultimate tribute to a legendary photographer.

Printed on lush and heavy paper stock, Edward Weston: 125 Photographs is a necessary addition to any serious art library. Its duotone reproductions are of the highest grade possible, made from newly created digital scans direct from the master images within the vaults of the Edward Weston Archive at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona.

Review:

"Edward Weston is one of the essential photographers of the 20th century. He helped define our prewar notions of the American West when it still beckoned as a frontier, as a refuge from civilization — if you could bear the unsparing light. His eye often sought out the lush, the sensual: nudes like landscapes, landscapes like nudes, and shells and peppers like both." The New York Times

Review:

"Since some of Weston's images have sold for more than a million dollars, this collection of provocative black-and-whites is a bargain." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Prudently selected from the work of acclaimed 20th century photographer Edward Weston, this tasteful and varied book clearly demonstrates why his photographs have endured throughout the years....A worthy tribute to a seminal talent." Amateur Photographer

Anthony De Cristofaro, July 5, 2014 (view all comments by Anthony De Cristofaro)
This is an amazing and inspiring collection of the best images made by one of the best photographers of all time. You will see the faces of a generation including his family, his lovers, and his artist friends. Each plate is accompanied by a short passage from the Daybooks or other writings. This collection of Weston in words and images touches a century of photographers and visual artists. So much of what he did paved the way for every trend that photography has endured. Powell's sent my copy last week and it now has a special place in my heart and library alongside the Daybooks and the books by other photographic icons of the 20th century.
