Designed directly in collaboration with the Weston family, this volume brings together for the first time the works of Edward Weston, of the his two sons Brett and Cole Weston, and granddaughter Cara. Edward Weston's images - the plastic portraits, the nudes that enhance shapes and volumes, the sand dunes, the objects transformed into sculptures, the famous vegetables and shells shot in the foreground - have marked the history of photography of the last century, ferrying it from the representation of reality in a pictorialist key of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries towards an innovative modernist and surrealist interpretation. Next to the photos of Edward, one of the absolute masters of world photography, a selection of images of his son Brett, the most determined in looking for a possible declination of his father's teachings (undoubtedly found in the landscape, studied and returned with geometries reminiscent of abstractionism in painting), of his son Cole, who distanced himself from his father (of whom he was a faithful printer) through the use of color, and of his niece Cara, still a photographer in business and a refined interpreter of black and white, close to classic themes reinterpreted according to a contemporary code. Far from being considered as a family portrait for works, the volume - published on the occasion of the Brescia exhibition - is configured as a story of artistic experiences that spans over a century of photography, history and images of a world in constant change.
