The White Iris



Thank you to the lovely Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.



The White Iris Postcard



Postcard titled The White Iris. Photograhed by Edward Weston, 1921. In a book of 30 postcards by Taschen. Few photographers created a legacy as diverse as that of the American Edward Weston (1886-1958). At the outset of his career, Weston worked successfully with painterly soft-focus techniques, but a decade later became the pioneer of a precise, sharp style of presentation dubbed "Straight Photography".

Beautiful. It's interesting how it is immediately identifiable as being from the 20's.
