There are two principal irritations here--first is the extensive quoting from letters and journals. Easily half the book. They interrupt any flow the book manages. Second is the tone, with the gratuitous generalizations and judgments sprinkled on almost every page, about psychology or about how great an artist Weston was. I have no argument with that, but why the repetition? The tone of the book is odd.

Love the book but the cover is completely different. Packaging made the product a little dinged up upon arrival. Overall great book, just wasn't expecting the small problems.

Format: Paperback
I was stunned how badly written this so-called biography is. It jumps around, often feels like a Peeping Tom is writing about Weston's life, rather than an objective professional and generally extremely disappointing. If you want to know about Edward Weston, best to read his Daybooks, look at his photographs and pick up Charis Wilson's memoir, Through Another Lens. She was Edward Weston's last wife, model and a fine writer. Skip this amateur (and according to Weston's family, reportedly often inaccurate) biography.
