Period & Style



Museum Practice

This major retrospective exhibition features photographs taken by Brett Weston (1911--1993) from the 1920s through the 1980s. The son of famed photographer Edward
Weston, Brett developed an understanding of form and composition at an early age. Throughout his career, Weston manipulated the technical qualities of the camera to frame
objects close up and push subject matter toward abstraction. These experiments placed him at the forefront of non-objective fine-art photography. Brett Weston: Out of the Shadow will include landscape photographs of the West, views of New York City, and abstracted forms and textures from nature. The exhibition will also highlight a selection of recent gifts from Christian K. Keesee and the Brett Weston Archive.
Co-organized by The Phillips Collection and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
