Assignment 5 : in the style of an influential photographer - Edward Weston
This assignment is now finished and on its way to my tutor. The final set of 12 were difficult to choose (there must be 200+ images to look through) and to decide upon a style for Edward Weston is not altogether simple as his style changed during his lifetime. To add some clarity to my work I wanted to pick a period when his work represented the best of his landscape output. Weston is not renowned for his landscape work while his studio work with shells, nudes and peppers is easily recognisable in popular culture. I have chosen the period when he lived in Carmel, California and his style during these later years of his life suited my own preference.
The images are shown here without the write up that accompanied them and are thumbnail quality. Original prints are 12.5"x10" with 2.5" white borders.
