    "During the early 1930s, Weston began a varied and insightful series of portraits of his friends and of artists, writers, and musicians whom he admired. Included here are portraits of poets Robinson Jeffers and E.E. Cummings, artists José Clemente Orozco and Isamu Nogushi, a,d musicians Igor Stavinsly and Walter Gieseking.
