Seeing California with Edward Weston was published in 1939 by Westways — Automobile Club of Southern California.

“42 p. of illustrations selected from 1000 negatives made by the author, a professional photographer, in his first year as a Guggenheim fellow whose project was ‘to photograph life.'”

Excerpt from https://www.loc.gov/item/39029733/ .

Describing Weston as “a professional photographer” is a bit of an understatement. He is the photographer whose outstanding work was acknowledged as fine art (see below).
