    Brett and Edward Weston

    Does anyone have a copy of Roger Aikin's essay:

    Brett Weston and Edward Weston: An Essay in Photographic Style

    It appeared in Art Journal, Vol. 32, No. 4 (Summer, 1973), pp. 394-404.

    It's available (for a price) through jstor, and academic database, but there're no institutions near me that have access to it.

    Thanks.

    Brett was/is leaps ahead of Edward. Sorry... but true.

    Still waiting for Charles Woods' biography of Brett "a Restless Eye" to be published. Could not find the Aikin essay mentioned (thought several in Lodima portfolio series), but there is Scott Hale's essay in "Out of the Shadow"

    Yes, sure wish the biography would be published.... And "Out of the Shadow" was an excellent read.

    Yes, and Edward ( the Father ) graciously said as much in his Day Books. Evidently Brett had a very fine sense of composition at an extremely young age...as I recall, in this early teens. There is a wonderful series of books on the images of Brett Weston published by Lodima Press. The reproductions are so good that one feels as though one is holding the original print, and the cost for the paper back edition(s) is extremely reasonable. The series is on the Michael and Paul site. There is simply no substitute for taking the time to observe a fine print in order to learn vision and technique.

    Thanks to those who contacted me directly. Really a wonderful essay, very seldom do we see this kind of detailed comparison of photographic style. A great compliment to "Dune" and "Out of the Shadow".
