Artists struggle in “the new” all the time. Creating form where there was none. Edward Weston’s Daybooks are full of his thoughts as explored the medium of photography and created what we now consider to be “the standards”. I find it fascinating to observe his thoughts as he explores light and form of simple objects to create beauty.
“I would say to any artist: Don’t be repressed in your work, dare to experiment, consider any urge, if in a new direction all the better.” – Edward Weston – Edward Weston to Ansel Adams
