That's interersting Bill. It appears to me that he was friends with Adams and Weston before he became a "name" political figure.

As far as his photography is concerned, and from his own words, he wanted to capture the essence of the land he loved, Arizona. I think he succeeded in that. No, he was not quite on the level of Adams or Weston, but I don't understand why being on that level should be a necessary criteria for success. On the contrary, I think its highly to his credit that Adams and Weston became friends. The connection of those friendships would have surely been photography. And again, his photography preceeds his political career by a good amount.
