In 1939, Seeing California with Edward Weston was published, with photographs by Weston and writing by Wilson. Buoyed by the success of their first book, in 1940 they published California and the West. Finally relieved from the financial stresses of the past and inordinately happy with his work and his relationship, Weston married Wilson in a small ceremony on April 24. Over the summer, Weston taught photography at the first Ansel Adams Workshop at Yosemite National Park.

Edward Henry Weston was born March 24, 1886, in Highland Park, Illinois . He spent most of his childhood in Chicago where he attended Oakland Grammar School. Weston’s first photographs captured the parks of Chicago and his aunt’s farm. In 1906, following the publication of his first photograph in Camera and Darkroom, Weston moved to California. After working briefly as a surveyor for San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad, he began working as an itinerant photographer. After moving back to California in 1926, Weston began his work for which he is most deservedly famous: natural forms, close-ups, nudes, and landscapes.

Edward Weston, major American photographer of the early to mid-20th century, best known for his carefully composed, sharply focused images of natural forms, landscapes, and nudes. His work influenced a generation of American photographers. Weston was born into a family of some intellectual substance-his father was a medical doctor and his grandfather a professor of literature-but, as a young man, he found little redeeming virtue in books and did not finish high school. In 1927 Weston returned to California, where he continued to explore pictorial ideas begun in Mexico in his famous close-up studies of shells, vegetables, rock forms, and semiabstract nudes.
