    There were a lot; I'm sure he didn't stop after #30. Many other pepper images have been published, and I know one scholar has worked on a catalog raisonee of his work. Someone on this forum (Merg Ross?) will know where the archive is... that's where you'll find the answer.

    I tried shooting a salad of ingredients myself.... harder than it looks.... to much detail with sharp lenses, and does not look as good as weston's photos. The eggs were the hardest for me....yum it was hard not to eat your subjects...

    Between 1927 and 1930 he made 44 exposures of peppers. 1927 (1), 1929 (26), 1930 (17). Brett claimed to have eaten #30, although his youngest brother was never convinced. It was often a point of contention when they were in the same room.

    Artsology decided to take some pictures of a pepper from our garden to see what visual effects we could find in a simple vegetable. Check out our pictures below.
