Brett Weston (American, 1911-1993), son of the renowned American photographer Edward Weston (1886-1958), explores the relationships between spaces and planes flawlessly throughout his corpus of work. At times, context is avoided in favor of ambiguity and eventually certain works begin to transform across dimensions. Simply put, Weston’s photography has the ability to synthesize nature and naturalize the synthetic–truly, and completely, altering our perception of the world around us.
