    Happy 119th Birthday Edward Weston!

    Born 3/24/1886

    "Clouds, torsos, shells, peppers, trees, rocks, smokestacks are but interdependent, interrelated parts of a whole, which is life.

    Life rhythms felt in no matter what, become symbols of the whole.

    The creative force in man recognizes and records these rhythms with the medium most suitable to him, to the object, or the moment, feeling the cause, the life within the outer form. Recording unfelt facts by acquired rules, results in sterile inventory.

    To see the THING ITSELF is essential: the Quintessence revealed direct without the fog of impressionism- the casual noting of a superficial phrase, or transitory mood.

    This then: to photograph a rock, have it look like a rock, but be MORE than a rock.--Significant presentation--not interpretation."

    April 24, 1930
