Edward Weston: the body and the line

CAMERA's Project Room in Turin hosts the exhibition Edward Weston. The body and the line, curated by Francesco Zanot and dedicated to one of the most important figures in the history of worldwide photography: Edward Weston (Highland Park, 1886 – Carmel, 1958).
The exhibition – consisting entirely of vintage works from the Philip and Rosella Rolla collection – compares a rich selection of photographs by the famous American photographer with drawings by some of the greatest exponents of American Minimalism, among which Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt, Fred Sandback and Richard Serra. At first glance very different, in fact these two groups of works share many characteristics. They both reflect similar interests and sensitivities, as can be seen through this exhibition project designed to throw new light on both, by means of an unusual but very close comparison. Just as for Minimal Art practitioners, for Weston, repetition was one of the central tenets of his approach. In addition to the famous series of peppers (in 1930 he created at least thirty images on this subject), even when he was working on portraits he followed some invariable rules (neutral expression, absence of frontality, close-up composition...). And above all, he created repeated images for each subject. Hence, the concept of repetition. Lastly, he printed a number of different images (which are exceptionally presented together in this exhibition), without considering it necessary to choose just one. Weston was stringent, like the Minimalists. And like them, his iconography is based on the concepts of discipline, geometry, precision, and scientific harmony. His modulus is the neutral space of the frame. Which in this case often blends with the space of the portraitist's studio.
