.Photographer Brett Weston’s Collection at Museum of Art

Just like the old adage says: a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, what about a whole gallery of photos from the leading 20th century photographer Brett Weston? Opening Friday at the SJ Museum of Art, Weston’s works will be on full display for photography lovers young and old, with his focus on landscapes and seascapes jumping with life. Weston was known for his bold, abstract work that showcased Big Sur, White Sands and the Oregon Coast throughout the 1930s to 1970s, and his favored subjects included natural elements, from cracked mud to tangled kelp.

  1. Edward, Brett, and Cole Weston are luminaries who are most significant leaders in our tradition of Northern California/West Coast photographic art. They are perhaps easily dismissed as old-fashioned traditionalists, but current practitioners of photography might well study and learn from these masters’ meticulous use of the medium of light and shadow. This exhibition is well worth seeing in person and thanks are due SJMA.
