NEW YORK, NY.- The Heckscher Museum of Art presents Edward Weston: Life Work. This extraordinary exhibition, on view from May 7, 2011 through July 24, 2011, surveys the 50-year career of a giant of 20th-century photography.

The photographs of Edward Weston (1886-1958) capture the rhythms, patterns and interconnections between nature and human experience. Whether exploring still life, the human face, the landscape or the nude, Weston’s goal was never a literal recording. His experiments with form and scale in still lifes of shells, peppers and radishes, his sculptural nudes, landscapes and dune studies, and his portraits of prominent artistic and literary figures sought to depict the subject “in its deepest moment of perception.”

Weston’s photographs are renowned for their sensuous print quality and for the rich black and white scale the photographer achieved during printing. Most of the works in this exhibition belonged to the Weston family, for whom the artist often reserved his finest prints. All are vintage, produced by the artist shortly after he shot the image, and thus represent his original vision.

Edward Weston: Life Work is drawn from the significant private collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, who consider Weston the “Picasso of photography.” This exhibition is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
