Edward Weston (1886-1958) was an American photographer. Widely considered a master of 20th century photography, Weston photographed an increasingly expansive set of subjects, including landscapes, still-lifes, nudes, portraits, genre scenes, and even whimsical parodies. He is credited with forging a quintessentially American, and specially Californian, approach to modern photography because of his focus on the people and places of the American West.
In 1937, Weston was the first photographer to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship, and over the next two years he produced nearly 1,400 negatives using an 8 × 10 view camera. Some of his most famous photographs were taken of the trees and rocks at Point Lobos, California, near where he lived for many years.
