Photo by Edward Weston
Following up on my blog highlighting the work of Edward Weston, I had an image that didn’t fit with the direction I was headed.
Moving from nudes to chards, cabbages and peppers, Weston found a facination with a new “nude” form……. toilets!
“I have been photographing our toilet, that glossy enameled receptacle of extraordinary beauty. Here was every sensuous curve of the ”human figure divine” but minus the imperfections. Never did the Greeks reach a more significant consummation to their culture, and it somehow reminded me, in the glory of its chaste convulsions and in its swelling, sweeping, forward movement of finely progressing contours, of the Victory of Samothrace.” -Edward Weston
Personally, I prefer the human form, specifically female.
