Edward Weston, well known photographer, first began snapping photos at the age of sixteen taking picture of parks of Chicago where he grew up and his auntâ€™s farm. In 1908 Weston attended the Illinois College of Photography in Effington, Illinois. Weston's style transitioned from a pictorial approach to a new emphasis on abstract forms and sharp resolution in the early 1920's. His most famous works include images of natural forms, close-ups, nudes, and landscapes. For ten years before his passing Weston suffered with symptoms of Parkinsonâ€™s disease, yet he took this time to watch his sons grow as photographers, following in their father's footsteps.
