Recent Acquisitions

San Francisco by Brett Weston

On our recent acquisitions shelf, we have a large, almost folio sized, book of photos by Brett Weston. The collection is vivid, though short. In only ten images, the photographer captures San Francisco from 1935-1939. A looming Golden Gate Bridge only recently opened, dusk over Ghirardeli Square with Alcatraz in the background, all beneath the ever present California sky. The afterward by Roger Aiken is insightful, relaying the relevant bits of Weston's story. TR654 .W432 2005
