Brett Weston in New York
Steven Kasher Gallery is today opening the first exhibition of Brett Weston's work in New York in in over 14 years!
This exhibition, which opens tonight, seeks to reestablish Weston’s status as one of the greatest American photographic artists of the 20th century; it includes over 80 black-and-white prints which were all printed by Weston, and are almost all vintage.
A life singularly devoted to lyrical and sensuous large-format photography, Weston found inspiration in the deserts and coasts of California and Mexico, in the streets of New York and San Francisco, and across the towns and villages of Europe.
Weston’s other obsession was women, many of whom he loved, and who loved him back. In the 1930s he had an affair with Mildred Cram, who memorialized Weston in her screenplay for Love Affair. The 1957 remake An Affair to Remember starred Cary Grant, whose style of seduction is said to be close to that of Brett Weston!
