  • Catalogue Essay

    "Brett Weston has achieved a body of work so sound and advanced as to represent a great achievement in the ever widening world of photography. . . He ranges without limit in subject matter, from the most evanescent subtleties through every nuance to the powerful mutations of nature and the monuments of man. One of the most distinguished contributions is his mastery. Of non-objective imagery, which of course is based on the myriad forms of nature, the greater designer. Here his seeing takes on the quality of miraculous perception and produces photographic prints of new aesthetic dimension. . . presented with the brilliance and the pristine quality which only photography can command." – Merle Armitage.
