About the exhibition, from the website:

In the early decades of the 20th century, young artists Brett Weston (1911-1993) and Sonya Noskowiak (1900-1975) rejected the accepted mode for art photography and embraced the cutting edge: modernism.

Both seriously pursued the medium on the encouragement of Edward Weston – father to Brett, and mentor and lover to Sonya. The elder Weston’s influence is apparent in Brett’s and Sonya’s early photography. However, both had extended careers that allowed for distinctive departures from their initial explorations.

Brett Weston and Sonya Noskowiak: Inspired Vision features 40 works by each photographer, allowing for comparisons between their landscapes, nature studies and portraits.

Brett Weston and Sonya Noskowiak: Inspired Vision is organized by the Center for Creative Photography and Phoenix Art Museum.
