Ode to Weston

Ode to Weston
Frenchtown, Montana


Edward Weston was an American photographer who worked from the 1920s to the 1940s, making black and white photographs with a large format view camera. While he photographed a variety of subjects, he is well known for pictures of everyday objects that emphasize their form. I felt that this photograph of a plastic funnel was reminescent of Weston's approach. You can see more of Weston's work at the Center for Creative Photography's online collection.
