Weston's Daybooks are a must read. That and Cartier-Bresson's "Introduction to the Decisive Moment" are the two essentials.
There is a great myth about Weston's womanizing. When, in the early 1950s he was asked how many women he had been with, he thought about it a while, counted carefully and answered "8". When someone answered that there must be more than that, he thought and answered "12." Now being with 12 woman in a life is not many, certainly not by contemporary standards. And yes, they all did seek him out. He did not pursue them. Even Charis relates that she had to seduce him and make the first moves. She was 19, he was 48. And, if you read carefully, he was with almost all of these women when he was single. After he married Charis, he did not get involved with anyone else.
It seemed everyone loved Edward--woman, men, everyone. I regret that, being too young, I did not have the opportunity to ever know him. I've come close though; I knew Brett (who said he never read the Daybooks), and I know Charis, who is alive and well, but is losing her sight, and Dody Weston Thompson (Edward's last assistant, Brett's wife for a time), who is writing a long essay about Edward for our forthcoming book on him.
