The years that Edward Weston spent in Mexico during the 1930s are considered the time that his photographic vision matured. In this exhibition catelogue for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, art historian Amy Conger has pulled together much new information concentrating on Weston's life during this time. A detailed account of his friendships, loves, and work--including his changing attitudes towards photography--is provided, making this a fascinating book.
