After mentioning that I was a fan of Andy Goldsworthy my professor suggested I check out Edward Weston. I went to his site http://www.edward-weston.com/ and found some amazing photographs. I've always admired Ansel Adams for his black and white nature photographs and Edward has a similar style. I especially liked his photographs of strange looking vegtables and fungus. I've always found mushrooms, fungus and lichens to be interesting topics for photos because of the variety of color that they provide. Weston's photos are great because they present a more dramatic picture than you get with color. Some of his family members followed him in the photography tradition and have pictures posted on the site which are also interesting .
