Edward Weston

Edward Weston never cropped his pictures. Can you believe it?!

Found a great NPR article on Mr. Weston.

Also, the National Gallery of Art (one of my most favorite museums) currently displays a few of Mr. Weston's photographs in this compelling exhibit: The Streets of New York: American Photographs from the Collection, 1938-1958. I just went there a couple of days ago during lunch and had my breath taken away. No photography was allowed in that exhibit, and so I couldn't document anything to share with you here. Oh well. If you're in DC between now and January 15, 2007, this is a must-see exhibit. And the best part is ... it's FREE! Don't you just love DC?!
