Synopsis

This captivating portrait of the extraordinary American photographer Edward Weston (1886-1958) follows his life from a well-established studio in Los Angeles, through his sojourn in Mexico, to twenty years spent in a cabin in an artists’ colony overlooking the Pacific in Carmel, California. His lifelong photographic fascination with Woman transformed over time into the effort to find a purely abstract form in which he approximated the curves of a woman’s body using the infolding structures of seashells, costal cliffs and bell peppers. The photographer’s grandson narrates.
