I recently purchased a copy of Edward Weston's Forms of Passion and was quite bl own away especially by the vegetable images. Some of them such as 'Onion Halved' are so detailed that I found it hard to imagine the technical demands placed on him by shooting with an 8x10.
Would anyone care to comment on these images or direct me to any books, the Dayb ooks perhaps? I would also like to check out the work of other photographers who made still life and close-up images especially with large format. Any suggestio ns?
