In 1925, long before photography was accepted as a "legitimate" art form, Brett Weston embarked upon a remarkable career that would span nearly seven decades. Somewhat of a prodigy, he mounted his first one-man museum retrospective at age 21 at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. His diverse images focus on New York skyscrapers as well as the natural world of Alaskan glaciers and Hawaiian leaves. Some of his most beautiful work is downright quirky, however, for few photographers have seen the beauty in cracked wallboard (plate 62).
