Edward Weston was born on March 24th, 1886 in Highland Park, Illinois. Most of Weston's childhood was spent in chicago where he went to school. At sixteen years old, he began taking pictures with a Bulls Eye #2 camera that he was given to by his dad. In 1906 Weston pubilshed his first photograph. And on Janurary 1st, 1958 Edward Weston died.
What intrigued me about this picture was the fact the Weston was able to in a sense make the pepper come to life. There is a fluidity to the way the lighting is reflecting off the seemingly beautiful....vegitable. The light just hits in a way that the pepper resemembles more of a human body then i dead garden veggie. Images like this are the reason that i am so interested in photography.
