This volume of photographs commemorates the centennial of Weston's birth. It is notable because it contains seldom-seen early work as well as obscure color work done late in his career. The early work, mostly soft focus portraits, shares little with the clean, sharp style and carefully observed forms for which he is renowned. The essay by eminent photo historian Newhall is essentially a biographical sketch, particularly interesting for anecdotes of Newhall's experiences working with Weston. The authoritative work on Weston, however, continues to be Edward Weston: seventy photographs by Ben Maddow. For larger collections.Frank Schroth, Technology Training Assocs., Cambridge, Mass.
