The subject of Epilogue is Margrethe Mather, Weston’s fellow photographer, business partner, and lover. Weston described Mather as ‘the first important person in my life,’ one who widened the scope of his experience and pushed him past the aesthetic confines of salon Pictorialism. Epilogue relates to another photograph by Weston of Mather, entitled Prologue to a Sad Spring
