"Mexico as Muse: Tina Modotti and Edward Weston," Sept. 2, 2006-Jan. 2, 2007, at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 151 Third Street, San Francisco, Ca. 94103.

Edward Weston (1886-1958) was born in Illinois, studied photography in college and moved to California, opening his own portrait studio in 1911. He married Flora Chandler, a member of a prominent Chicago family, in 1909, and had four sons (including the photographers Brett and Cole Weston). By 1913, he was involved with the photographer Margrethe Mather, both professionally and romantically, an association that introduced him to a more bohemian world.
