Edward Weston

While Weston was in San Francisco to see his exhibition at the De Young, he discovered Kale: the “most extraordinary curly-leaved cabbage”, he called it, and he photographed it around December 13. Henrietta Shore liked his still life of kale better than his earlier one of conventional cabbage, but he responded: “I think it is a ‘knock out’ but no more so than the first.”.
