Edward Weston exhibition curator Travis discusses the photographs Weston made at the end of his career and as he entered old age. Using as a point of departure a little-known masterpiece from 1944, Travis suggests several reasons why this powerful period in Weston's career has been misunderstood, drawing parallels between Weston's photographs and the late works of Franz Liszt and Wallace Stevens.
