Kim Weston - Platinum #309

2004 (4×5) Platinum Print of the Month Portfolio – Out of Print

The 2004 POM Portfolio represents some of Kim Weston’s earliest visions of traditional nude photography. As you can see from the images that he was photographing in his home and studio with very simple surroundings and themes. Several years ago Kim learned how to print in Platinum. Ryuijie, a local fine art photographer, taught him in an afternoon.

Kim was fascinated with the Platinum process. His grandfather Edward Weston had also printed in platinum, it is an old time honored process. Kim has gone back 20 years into his archives of negatives and has hand picked this selection.

“This was a very productive time for me, but unfortunately not many people got to see these images. I was using my Linhof 4×5 that I received from my Uncle Brett. In order not to have these prints compete with the few images I have made in silver, I will be printing them in Platinum. Not only do I get the opportunity to revisit with old friends (negatives), I get to share some of my earlier work with you”.
