  • Catalogue Essay

    "Not till I focused, did I realize, recognize, that I was using one of Brett’s details, an insignificant bit – at first glance – which he had glorified, used in one of his best seen negatives. Brett and I were always seeing the same things to do – we have the same kind of vision. He didn’t like this: naturally enough he felt that even when he had done the thing first, the public would not know and he would be blamed for imitating me." – Edward Weston
