Photography by Weston Four Generations of Beauty and Artistry

  • Sep 27, 2014 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us for a unique and captivating presentation and tour of four generations of a Carmel Highlands’ treasure - Weston Photography. Glimpse the actual setting, old photography darkroom and studio that have spawned four generations of some of the world’s most renowned photographic images.

Kim Weston will walk us through the artistic process and the inspirations that have driven it. You will see stunning photographs from Edward, Cole, Kim and Zach Weston rarely seen in one, intimate setting, framed in the anecdotal stories behind them.


About Kim Weston:

Kim has been a fine art nude photographer for over 30 years. He is a third-generation member of one of the most important and creative families in photography. An internationally known artist, his photographs have been widely collected and exhibited in the US and worldwide.

He learned his craft assisting his father Cole in the darkroom making gallery prints from his grandfather Edward’s original negatives. Kim also worked for many years as an assistant to his uncle Brett, whose bold, abstract photographs rank as some of the finest example.

Kim Weston’s first camera was a Rolleiflex, as he got older he photographed with a 4×5 Linhof (a gift from his uncle Brett), and then he switched to a 8×10 Calumet and a 8×10 Arca Swiss. Lately, Kim has been photographing with a medium format camera, a Mamiya 67 that he inherited from his father Cole Weston.

His main body of work consists of silver gelatin photographs made from 6×7 (56mm x 69mm), 4×5 and 8×10 negatives. In addition to the 8×10 format he prints in 11×14 and 16×20 sizes. He also prints in Platinum and lately he has added paint to his photographs.

Kim and his wife, Gina, live at Wildcat Hill, the former home of Edward Weston where they specialize in teaching several unique photography workshops here and abroad throughout the year.

Kim & Gina are educators and mentors to young photographers. The Weston Scholarship Fund was established in 2004 to support high school and college students studying fine art photography in Monterey County. To read more about it please visit, www.Weston Scholarship.org

    Sorry, that last post of mine created an inaccurate impression — if I could edit it now I would, but to late. I was just saying that I'm on a list and would love to get a chance to go to this event.

    I got on a separate alternate list, about which an email was sent today. I followed through on that, but I'd be happy to join the Saturday visit if space is now open on account of Rory Earnshaw's cancellation.

    This Weston event sounds absolutely wonderful. Not sure how I managed to miss the original posting as there is now a waiting list, which I'm on. Sure hope it opens up so Marsha and I can attend.

    I took a fine art nude workshop with Kim a couple weeks ago and got to spend 3 days at Wildcat Hill with Kim & Gina.

    Because of this I'm changing my RSVP to no to give someone else a chance to see this inspiring place.

    A long time fan of Edward Weston's work I would love to see what the third generation has learned and and adapted.

    The photos are currently on display at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas. From the website, it looks like the exhibit closes at the end of June.
