Jacqueline Hassink

This huge area of Labrador granite quarries revealed something which intrigued me greatly. In the month of July the quarries are empty. Spending day after day there, I saw that, under the influence of water, nature and human labour, the quarries produce abstract drawings. These drawings are never the same. It is an ongoing process in time; rain, snow and sunshine, as well as blasting, the cuts of the diamond saw and marks of the machines, create new drawings which are in some cases very impressive.

It is said that he developed a "quintessentially American, and specially Californian, approach to modern photography"[3] because of his focus on the people and places of the American West. In 1937 Weston was the first photographer to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship, and over the next two years he produced nearly 1,400 negatives using his 8 × 10 view camera. Zeng han. Joel Sternfeld.

That level of dismissiveness is entirely consistent with everything we think that we know about this great photographer from the American South. J D Salinger would have done the same.
