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!

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.

Kim Weston

 

 

Kim Weston is a third-generation fine art photographer from one of the most influential and creative families in American history. His recognition as a singularly creative artist and photographer continues a family legacy that traces its roots back to his grandfather Edward Weston, his uncle Brett, and his father Cole.

In a career spanning four decades, Kim has come to be recognized in his own right as one of the most insightful and accomplished practitioners of figurative/nude photography, producing an extensive and masterful portfolio of work that draws deeply, yet expands upon the traditions and canon of the nude in classical and modern European art.


I make pictures which are meant to be direct and truthful. I do not explain or rationalize this work or my passion for it. I leave it to the viewer to find the surprises. I hope the work generates feelings; otherwise I have failed.
— Kim Weston

Print of the Month: "Picasso Nude"

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.
