My first coffee table book was “Forms of passion, passion of forms” about the art of Edward Weston. Through his body of work he gradually moved away from pictoralism and romanticism towards a quite sophisticated new modernism. He explored natural forms – the human figure, seashells, plants, rocks and landscapes – in a way that has been an early source of inspiration for me as a photographer. Sometimes I zoom in on forms like I can imagine Weston did during his sessions with cabbage, onions, peppers and Charis. I never eat my subject afterwards though.
