One of the great pieces in the history of photography Pepper  is a prized photograph found in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Center for Creative Photography in Arizona the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the George Eastman House in Rochester. When Edward Henry Weston took up photography at the age of  he perhaps never imagined that such a simple subject would become the pinnacle of work done over decades. A couple of years after those peppers around  Weston would cofound the f Group. Along with Ansel Adams Willard Van Dyke Imogen Cunninham and Sonya Noskowiak Weston creates one of the most important and iconic collectives in the history of photography.

It was already the s and he began to show symptoms of Parkinsons disease. He took the last photograph of him in  and died a decade later.  A paradigmatic photograph Pepper  is one of those paradigmatic photographs that mark directions and that meant one of the great triumphs not only of its author but of photography as a whole.
