Brett Weston was a master of black-and-white photography who used his camera to capture increasingly-abstract forms in the world around him. The exhibition presents Weston photographs, gifted by the Christian Keesee Collection, alongside those by his contemporaries like Aaron Siskind, Ansel Adams and Brett’s father, Edward Weston.
