One of the things I enjoy is learning from the Masters which is why I started these inspiration posts. Not only do they help us keep a perspective on our work but I learn personally learn a lot from.
Through these posts, I have come across many photographers bot well known and unknown. One of the photographer’s whose work I’ve only been recently acquainted with is that of Brett Weston.
Born in Los Angeles in 1911, the son of Edward Weston works are of the abstract nature. However, it can be said that he was influenced by his father’s. The love of striking contrast, deep shadows and the general forms can be noticed in both their works.
At the beginning of his career he was more interested in plant leaves, knotted roots and tangle Kelp. Later on, he concentrated on close ups and abstracted details which are what drew me to his work.
Some of the most beautiful shapes created by nature, captured for the sole purpose to draw the viewer in.
Below are a few of my favourites but more can be learned on the artist here.
