Edward Henry Weston (1886-1958) first started taking photographs at the age of sixteen with a camera given to him by his father. Over the next five decades, he would come to be regarded by his peers as one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century.This unique volume is a collection of his photographic studies of the nude form, first put together in 1953 with co-operation of acclaimed photography critic Nancy Newhall, and is the only book on the subject that Weston himself participated in. In the 1950s, however, publishers of fine art photography were reluctant to address the subject, and the proposal was rejected.In 1985, an incomplete version of the original mock up was acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum. It was only in 2006 that the previously unpublished volume was able to be re-created in its original form - finally realizing Weston and Newhall's true vision.
