Catalogue Note

Shell and Rock Arrangement was one of nine images by Weston that comprised the original 1932 Group f.64 exhibition at the M. H. de Young Memorial Museum, San Francisco.  With its sharp focus, strong detail, and great depth of field, Shell and Rock Arrangement illustrates the new, straight style that was the underlying principle of Group f.64.
