Brett Weston: Selections from the Freedman Gallery Collection at the Freedman Gallery, Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania. The exhibit highlighted 70 photographs gifted from the Archive in 2005. In the catalog for this exhibit photography scholar Laurie Dahlberg, chair of Art History at Bard College, writes: "Like his father, Weston was an unabashed formalist; his steadfast attachment to the pure visuals in his photographs was a way to protect the images from the sentimental pull of subject matter, the mundane interest of factual detail, and the constant expectation of the documentary motive. . . . his compositions . . . suppress subject matter, so that form may have its full, extended play in the aesthetics of the image."

Brett Weston in Hawaii, at the Honolulu Academy of the Arts. This continuation of the 2003 exhibition of selected prints serves as a complement to the exhibition In the Celebration of Light: Photographs from the Collection of Cherye and James F. Pierce. Included were an early and very rare Mexican subject as well as a print of Holland Canal, one of his most celebrated photographs. Taken together, they hint at the beauty Brett Weston discovered in the world around him and his commitment to capturing it through the lens of his camera and fixing it on paper.

Brett Weston: Vintage Photographs, at the Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York City, this exhibition was the artistís first one-person retrospective in a New York art gallery. A large portion of the exhibition featured never before exhibited - and therefore largely unknown - bodies of work. It is believed that fifty percent of Westonís photographic artwork was neither shown nor reproduced during the artistís lifetime. This exhibition provided the opportunity to more fully assess Brett Westonís unique contribution to the medium of photography, and his significant place in its history.
