Edward never drove, so he never drove alone

In 1941 Edward Weston was hired to photograph what was left of Walt Whitman’s America. Since Edward never learned to drive, his wife, Charis Wilson, piloted their brand new Ford. Together they set out on a months-long journey, documenting our nation on the eve of World War II.
