Edward Weston on Manuel Alvarez

Fireworkers

I remember being fascinated by Manuel Alvarez Bravo’s photography when I was in University. It started my fascination with Mexico. I don’t know why. I also remember reading Edward Weston’s letter to him in 1929 (the letter is dated 1929 that is!) and here is a link to the letter. I don’t even know how I stumbled on this today but what a great find!

Indeed in Weston’s words: "photography is fortunate in having someone with your viewpoint."
