    Conger, Edward Weston: Photographs from the Collection of the Center for Creative Photography, fig. 879

  • Catalogue Essay

    The number 2-40 references the “Edward Weston Print of-the-Month Club” whereby monthly subscribers to Camera Craft magazine could purchase Weston’s prints for a reduced price of $5 per print. Weston intended to limit the editions to 40 prints (35 for subscribers and 5 for the artist) and noted the individual prints as such. However, after receiving very few paid subscriptions over a 12-month period, Weston abandoned the project without ever realizing the full editions. This early print is thus much rarer than the edition would suggest.
