Kim, Zach, and Annabelle will be heading down to Los Angeles this weekend for the opening of Stark Beauty: The Photography of Edward Weston at the Bowers Museum.
In a special behind-the-photo tour of the exhibition, Edward Weston’s grandson, Kim, will share the more intimate story of his photographer-grandfather. Attendees of this sold-out tour will learn how Edward's life inspired future generations to see the world through a black and white lens.
Kim, a highly recognized photographer in his own right, will share insight on the art and process of each print and stories that will make them come alive for those fortunate enough to join this special tour.
During his lifetime Edward Weston (March 24, 1886- January 1, 1958) revolutionized photography by taking unadulterated pictures of his subjects. Stark Beauty captures Weston much in the same way the artist captured the world through his lens.
Three sections represent the most iconic aspects of Weston’s work: portraits of his beautiful muses and famous contemporaries, vast American landscapes depicting the United States in unaltered focus and reality, and close-ups which find beauty in the forms of man-made objects, vegetables, and the bare human body.
