Brett Weston (1911-1993), distinguished himself in mid-century America as a black-and-white photographer, especially of the natural world. This exhibition presents an extraordinary group of images he shot in the 1940s, in and around White Sands, New Mexico. The photographs are signature Weston, depicting a landscape made elegant and strange, a sea of shape and line.

This exhibition celebrates the museum’s gift from the Christian Keesee Collection of photographs by Brett Weston.

Exhibition support provided by Texas Commission on the Arts and the El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
