Edward Weston's Wildcat Hill
Weston Photography is located in Carmel Highlands, California on Wildcat Hill where Edward Weston lived and worked from 1938 until his death in 1958. The property holds the same charm and artistic energy today as it did when he lived here. The house's original structure and Edward's darkroom have remained as they were when Edward lived here, now used to display the photographs printed from his original negatives by his youngest son, and Kim's father, Cole Weston.
Photographs by Kim Weston
Weston Photography has offered the finest quality silver gelatin prints to collectors for nearly four decades. All of Kim Weston's prints are traditionally processed in his darkroom on Wildcat Hill, mounted on museum quality mat-board, and signed on the front in pencil with the year and edition number printed on the back. You may browse Kim's photographs online or visit the Weston Photography Gallery on Wildcat Hill to see them in person. We would love to meet you!
Kim Weston's Print of the Month
August 2017 - "Ritorto"
Size: 8x10 print mounted to 15x18 museum-quality mat-board
Medium: Silver gelatin print.
Edward Weston believed that "photography [was] a poor man's art and anyone who wants to own a print should be able to" which is why he, with his last wife Charis Wilson, began producing Prints of the Month.
As per family tradition, every month, Kim and Gina release an 8x10 silver gelatin Print of the Month (POM) for a special price which can be purchased individually or as part of the year's POM Portfolio.
FROM KIM AND GINA WESTON'S PRIVATE COLLECTION
Weston Photography offers silver gelatin photographs printed directly from Edward Weston's original negatives by his son, Cole Weston. Each photograph is an 8x10 inch contact print dry mounted on 100% rag, acid free mount stock. On the back of the mount, each print is titled and dated with Edward’s negative code and is signed by Cole Weston in pencil.
