Pepper #30

Edward Weston. Pepper #30. 1930.

 

 

"I could wait no longer to print them- my new peppers, so I put aside several orders, and yesterday afternoon had an exciting time with seven new negatives.

First I printed my favorite, the one made last Saturday, just as the light was failing - quickly made, but with a week's previous effort back of my immediate, unhesitating decision. A week?  Yes, on this certain pepper, but twenty-eight years of effort, starting with a youth on a farm in Michigan, armed with a no. 2 Bull's Eye [Kodak] have gone into the making of this pepper, which I consider a peak of achivement.

It is a classic, completely satisfying - a pepper - but more than a pepper: abstract, in that it is completely outside subject matter... this new pepper takes one beyond the world we know in the conscious mind."
- Edward Weston from his Daybook 1930
