Description

Weston produced a total of fifteen portfolios during his lifetime. San Francisco, the first, was published in 1939, while Twenty Photographs, his last, was released in 1978. Fifteen Photographs, published in 1961 and released in an edition of fifty, was his fourth portfolio.

Like his father Edward Weston's Fiftieth Anniversary Portfolio, Fifteen Photographs spans more than twenty-five years of the artist's career. Whether detailed close-ups of nature (which Weston called "elegant bits") or encompassing views of the landscape, most of the images can be interpreted as highlights from the visible world as well as celebrations of abstract form.
