Tina Modotti & Edward Weston : the Mexico years by Sarah M Lowe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tina Modotti and Edward Weston arrived in Mexico in 1923 at the start of an extraordinary period of artistic creativity that became known as the Mexican Renaissance. The book traces the interwoven lives and work of Modotti and Weston from the early 1920's in Los Angeles, where they met, until the 1930's, focusing in detail on their time together in Mexico, where virtually all of Modotti's photographs were taken. In bringing together for the first time close to 150 photographs by Modotti and Weston, it reveals the distinctive responses to Mexico of two photographers from widely different backgrounds. At the same time, like other Modernists in Mexico, these two artists self-consciously created work that broke wholly with the immediate past, and fashioned an idiom in defiance of traditional ideas. A selection of images by two Mexican photographers, Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Mariana Yampolsky, reveals how indigenous photography was influenced by these two foreigners

Edward Weston : photography and modernism by Theodore E Stebbins ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This third and culminating volume in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts' outstanding series on Edward Weston (1886-1958) examines the greatest works of Weston's career, his stylistic development, and especially the ways in which he responded to contemporary modernists. Comparative illustrations of work by Picasso, Brancusi, O'Keeffe, Diego Rivera, Henrietta Shore, and other artists provide a better understanding of these influences. Following an introduction by Theodore Stebbins, three sections of photographs with accompanying essays demonstrate the entire range of Weston's work: his work as a pictorialist before 1920; experimental portraits, landscapes, and still lifes from the Mexican Period; his landmark still lifes of shells and peppers; small-format portraiture and fragmentary nudes; the classic "high modernist" series of nudes and dunes from the 1930s; and his late abstract landscapes. Included are brilliant prints of Weston's most famous images, including Pepper 30, Excusado, and Palma Cuernavaca, as well as numerous unfamiliar photographs that broaden our understanding of this great photographer."--BOOK JACKET
Edward Weston : photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum by Brett Abbott ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The biography of the photographer Edward Weston (American, 1886-1958) is full of colorful vignettes of the sort that enliven popular accounts of an artist's life. The singular pursuit of aesthetic ideals (and the resulting financial hardships); the marriages, divorces, and affairs; the early onset of a debilitating illness - all punctuate most Weston histories. However, what remains at the core of any examination of the photographer's career is his body of work, which includes signature images that are among the finest in the medium." "In 2003 the Getty Museum, which holds a collection of about 240 Weston prints, hosted a colloquium on the photographer. This volume in the In Focus series records remarks by the author, Brett Abbott, along with those of six other participants: William Clift, Amy Conger, David Featherstone, Weston Naef, David Travis, and Jennifer Watts. Context for their conversation is provided by the author's introduction, plate texts, and chronology. Approximately fifty of Weston's images demonstrate why his work continues to resonate with a contemporary public and serves as a model for a host of photographers active today."--BOOK JACKET
