This photograph from Weston’s “Leaves of Grass” series. In 1941, the Limited Editions Club of New York invited photographer Edward Weston to illustrate its deluxe edition of Walt Whitmans epic poem Leaves of Grass. The commission inspired Weston and his wife, Charis, to take a cross-country trip, throughout the South, the Mid-Atlantic states, New England, and back to California, in their trusty Ford, which they nicknamed Walt. Westons photographs from this projectmostly made with large, 8 x 10 cameraare exceptionally wide-ranging, with a particular focus on urban and man-altered landscapes. Although he never wanted his images to literally reflect Whitmans text, Weston did relate to the poets plainspoken style and his emphasis on the broad spectrum of human experience. Weston wrote of the Whitman book: I do believe I can and will do the best work of my life. Of course I will never please everyone with my Americawouldnt try to.
