Review of "Viva Mexico!" Edward Weston at Boston's MFA

Posted By Administration, Monday, June 22, 2009

Maybe the best way to understand "Viva Mexico! Edward Weston and His Contemporaries" is as three interlocking hinges.

The first hinge is Weston himself. He's a pivotal figure in 20th-century American photography.

Nearly all the images come from the Lane Collection, which is on long-term loan at the museum. It's a small show. There are just 44 images, 33 by Weston. (Two more are in the next gallery, part of a companion exhibition, "Vida y Drama: Modern Mexican Prints.") But that smallness is rich and intricately layered.

Read the complete review in The Boston Globe.
