Biography

Edward Weston, (American, 1886-1958), was born in Highland Park, Illinois and from an early age was involved with photography. He studied at the Illinois College of Photography in 1908, afterwards moving to Los Angeles to work for a commercial portrait studio and eventually starting his own. Weston exhibited his works in many salons and exhibitions, making his works known in the photographic community. In 1929 Weston moved to Carmel, California, where he would spend the rest of his life. Here he was fascinated by his surroundings, producing many works in the Point Lobos coastal region. Weston stopped creating photographs in 1948, suffering from Parkinson's disease.
