How Iconic Photographer Edward Weston Approached Photography

Edward Weston was one of the masters of 20th century photography. He's been called one of the most innovative and influential American photographers. Truly one of the icons of photography.



This film was shot by American filmmaker Willard Van Dyke, an apprentice of Weston’s, who went on to become a very notable photographer in his own right and in 1932 he co-founded Group f/64, with Imogen Cunningham, Ansel Adams, and Weston. He then went on to become a cinematographer and directed this documentary in 1948, which was produced for the United States Information Agency

This film covers Weston's philosophy about photography and his approach to the art. You'll get a rare glimpse of an artist at work and how he visualized his photographs, loved nature, didn't follow the rules, and how he used cameras to create his unique images. Join me as we step back in time, 70 years and explore the world of Edward Weston.

Weston really influenced me, as I mentioned in my book, Advancing Your Photography. - said Marc Silber - He had an amazing way of finding and capturing the beauty of everyday objects the rest of us might just walk by.

A trivia item: The fishermen were played by his sons who became major photographers in their own right.
