About Kim Weston
Kim Weston’s photographic vision has long been influenced by the work of his grandfather Edward Weston. He learned his craft assisting his father Cole in the darkroom, making gallery prints from Edward’s negatives.
He also worked many years as an assistant to his uncle Brett Weston, whose bold, abstract photographs rank as some of the finest examples of modern photographic art. Kim has become a prolific photographer, and tends to refer to his photography as a “lifestyle”.

Kim’s Print of the Month (POM) Portfolios
For the past 10 years, Kim Weston has offered “The Print of the Month Club”. It gave collectors the opportunity to acquire 12 of his original photographs, one for every month of the year at discounted prices. If they collected all 12 photographs in the calendar year, they received a handmade portfolio box to house their collection in.
The Print of the Month Portfolios may be purchased as a complete set or single photographs within the collection may also be purchased individually.

Platinum prints are valued for their inherent beauty and archival permanence. The unique beauty of a fine platinum print involves a broad scale of tones from black to white.
The delicate, rich platinum tones range from warm black, to reddish brown, to expanded mid-tone grays that are unobtainable in silver prints.
While Kim was learning the platinum printing process he ended up with many images he could not use for a final print. This allowed him to experiment with adding colors to the surface of his images.
He felt a sort of freedom to color, scratch and apply paints to the surface of the print. The end result exemplifies Kim’s inherent nature of seeing and working in color, and since then he has gone on to alter the silver gelatin surface with oil paints.
