    Because the dunes were unknown artistic grounds for both men, Brett’s work is not an extension of his father’s vision but rather a simultaneous exploration of the same subject matter…Brett’s dunes were overtly subjective and more two-dimensional from the start. He exploited dramatic side slighting, sometimes working directly into the light. The dunes fulfilled Brett’s desire to pursue sensual form irrespective of the “thing.”
    -John Charles Woods, introduction to Dune: Edward & Brett Weston
