Part of our masters of photography series, we pay tribute to Brett Weston and his captivating White Sands images. There are believed to be a total of 50 of Brett Weston's White Sands portfolios in existence, some printed in 1949, others printed in 1975. The 1949 printing, comprised of 10 images, is scarce, as only 17 copies of this 10-image portfolio are believed to have been completed. The later printing in 1975 of the additional 33 portfolios, which comprised 12 images, included 9 of the original images as well as 3 later images. All 50 of the portfolio cases were manufactured at the time of the 1949 printing, and were used for both the 1949 and 1975 editions of the portfolios. The original 10-image portfolio is currently valued around $25,000 to $35,000. But there is no need to despair; Lodima Press reproduced 15 images of the White Sands portfolio, you can order the book directly from Lodima Press. Another book we can highly recommend is Brett Weston: Master Photographer
Brett Weston seemed destined from birth to become one of the greatest American photographers. Born in 1911 in Los Angeles, California, Weston was the second son of famous photographer Edward Weston. At the age of 14, his father removed him from school where they then relocated to Edward Weston’s photographic studio in Mexico. It was in Mexico where Weston began making photographs with a Graflex 3 ¼ x 4 ¼ Camera. He became his father’s apprentice and was introduced to painters like Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco, and photographers such as Tina Modotti. These artists introduced the young Weston to modern art forms, which unquestionably influenced his early sense of form and composition. Under the astonished eye of his father, Weston began his legendary technical precision, bold design and extreme abstractions of form. His father once observed that Weston was doing better work at the age 14 then he had done at the age of 30 years old. According to the curator of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Van Deren Coke, “Brett Weston was the child genius of American photography.
Throughout the decades of the 1950s and 1970s, Brett Weston's style changed sharply and was characterized by high contrast, abstract imagery. The subjects he chose were, for the most part, not unlike what interested him early in his career; plant leaves, knotted roots and tangled kelp along the beach. He concentrated mostly on close-ups and abstracted details, but his prints reflected a preference for high contrast that reduced his subjects to pure form.
Brett Weston’s lifetime devotion and total involvement with the medium created a body of work and a contribution to photography that transcends comparisons to his father and has few equals in contemporary photography.

Braun BN0171 watch review. Lucia Fontana 08/04/2014 Reviews. Always wanted to have an all-black designer watch so I was finally happy to be given the opportunity to review this dream-come-true watch design by Braun. We had a chance to review the new Braun BN0171 watch which is being rolled out in limited quantities for now through NOVA68.com. The BN0171 is perhaps the finest watch ever to be released by Braun with its attractive all-black casing and strap that are, for the first time in Braun's history, made of midnight black ceramic. While we love the midnight black edition, a sleek stone grey version is also available. Following the IF and Red dot awards of 2013, this unique watch was recognized once again – this time receiving four German Design Awards from a jury of leading international design experts in 2014. The Braun BN0171 is one of the larger watches from the collection, featuring a classic round 38mm face and for the first time a ceramic bracelet. Braun watches and clocks were awarded a total of four German Design Awards at the annual awards ceremony in Frankfurt on 7th February 2014. Available in black or stone grey, the watch has three hand quartz movement, a ceramic case and a yellow seconds ticker adding a touch of color to the simple face. We found the watch to be easy to wear and operate. The watch has a reasonably slim case profile of 9.5mm compared to other Braun watches. It also matched well with any style of outfit and could be worn comfortable during working hours or on weekends. More specifically, we like its price. The $599 watch you are looking at deliver as much if not more value than an all-black stainless steel rolex datejust and is definitely more attractive thanks to its refined German styling.
The German Design Award which was given to these Braun watches is an international premium prize, which successfully enhances the standing of both designers and companies. Prizes are awarded to top quality products and projects from product and communication design, design personalities and newcomers, all of whom are —in their own way— pioneering in German and international design landscape. As an industry competition for the industry that highlights participants’ great design expertise, the German Design Award has an excellent public image. This is also down to the reputation of its organizer, the German Design Council, which has been representing and supporting the German design industry with its expertise in all questions relating to design for 60 years now. To win a German Design Award on the occasion of the anniversary of the German Design Council is especially significant – it stands for 60 years of design culture. Iconic German brand Braun returns with a collection of watches inspired by the classic designs of the original Braun design team. Now made under licence by British watch brand Zeon, the collection features a new range of products that pay homage to the work of industrial designers Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs, who together designed the famous AB series alarm clock. The Braun Watch Collection is available from NOVA68.
