Edward Weston: The Photographer (1948)


Here’s a fascinating 26-moment narrative about the life and work of twentieth century photographer Edward Weston, a man who is thought to be a standout amongst the most compelling American photographic artists and one of the masters of photography throughout his period. The 1948 film, titled “The Photographer,” was shot by American producer Willard Van Dyke, a disciple of Weston’s, who happened to turn into an exceptionally eminent photographer in his own particular right. Two of Weston’s photographs, Nude (1925) and Nautilus (1927), are currently among the 20 most expensive photos ever sold, worth $1,609,000 and $1,082,500, respectively.
