From light-control to master-printing, Weston meticulously glorified on film nautilus shells, green peppers and household implements. Less famous but impressive in a selection gathered here for the first time are the portraits that made up most of his life's work. Quietly catching on large-format film his models' characters, Weston in the 1920s and '30s expanded existing norms of background and composition in portraying such personalities as D.H. Lawrence, Diego Rivera, Robinson Jeffers, Jo Davidson, Henry Fonda and Ansel Adams, along with his own sons and various friends and associates. Included are several nudes of his protegee, model and lover, Tina Modotti, as well as some of his second wife, Charis Wilson.

Book Description 
  
Although revered for his vibrant still lifes and haunting California landscapes, Edward Weston spent the major part of his towering career, from 1917 to 1948, perfecting a standard of photographic portraiture that has rarely been surpassed. Weston's timeless images of the famous and fascinating presences who crowded the canvas of his free-spirited life-among them Robinson Jeffers, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Tina Modotti, Igor Stravinsky, James Cagney, Lincoln Steffens, D.H. Lawrence, Carl Sandburg, e.e. cummings, and Dorothea Lange-compromise a starting 70 percent of the photographer's oeuvre. 
  
 
  
Edward Weston Portraits is the first published collection of Edward Weston's most revealing portraits and shows the artist at his most inspired: "rendering the very substance, the deeper inner image" of sons, lovers, friends, and fellow artists with such commanding immediacy that they linger in the mind's eye long after viewing.
