Bibliography and exh. history ( –1965).
Original Brett Weston monograph from a 1966 solo exhibition featuring his abstract and specifically tactile photographic work. Newhall's introduction follows the life of Weston's work by marking points along the line of his shifting point of view, both as an artist and in his personal and professional life. What remains consistent is whatever can be captured starkly–the inherent contrasts of black and white, the depth and distances of landscape, turning objects and places into outlines of dark and light. Looking beyond the content of his collected works, the monograph acknowledges the artist's commitment to the rituals of "serious printing" and the darkroom, and addresses the future adventures and countries the artist planned to explore––new places to command for new forms.
