Contents: Edward Weston has been called "one of the most innovative and influential American photographers…" and "one of the masters of 20th century photography." In 1938 he traveled 23,000 miles through California and made over 1,000 negatives. His project was "to photograph life," and he chose California because it was a state he knew and loved.
This book contains many of those photographs Weston made during his year of travel. The book is broken down into sections based on state geography such as Death Valley, Lake Tahoe, Point Lobos, etc.
This copy of the book is an ex-library copy. It has been heavily used and is fragile but if handled with care it will remain a very usable copy of a very scarce book.
