This still life of a pepper has become one of the world's classic photographs. Those familiar with Weston's work will also know the sensual images he created of women taken using wide angle to accentuate shapes and define muscle - in much the way he's treated the recording of this pepper. The pepper has become sensual, helped by the way the light has been recorded on the natural twists and curves of the surface.
It's a simple shot taken in a tin funnel, but use of light and careful exposure takes it way beyond simple. But is it a classic? Up to you...let's here your thoughts.
