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.
