PlantTherapy: Edward Weston

Sep 6, 2008
Pepper, 1930

Faith's post the other week about savoring the beauty of your tomatoes reminded me of one of my favorite photographers, Edward Weston. His honest and straightforward photography brought out the simple beauty of any natural object he chose to train his lens on.

It was his famous photo of the pepper, above, that taught me to look closely at the often overlooked forms in everyday life...

In late summer, as the farmer's markets and local stands are brimming with what has come in from the fields, you can find this wonder in almost anything you choose to bring home. Heirloom tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, carrots still with the dirt on them...
