The best way to fully appreciate the 100 photographic works on view in the James A. Michener Museum’s exhibit “Edward Weston: Life Work” would be to rent the gallery for a week, put up a tent, and bed down every night in a world of Westons. If you happen to be familiar with his work, maybe you could find a more practical solution, like multiple visits or going to the nearest library, as I did, to check out Beaumont Newhall’s Supreme Instants: The Photography of Edward Weston (Little Brown 1986).
