Remembering Cole Weston: Master of Color Photography

Remembering Cole Weston: Master of Color Photography

In the mid 1960s, when Carmel’s public school relocated to a new building, Cole Weston, in his 40's at the time, was approached for his interest in using the space where he and his brother had once attended grade school. Under Cole's management as its first director, the space became  the site for one of the most significant organizations in contemporary photography.

This Saturday, October 28, 2017, the Center for Photographic Art will celebrate the Friends of Photography gallery's 50th anniversary!

It's our turn to help the Center for Photographic Art! Monterey Gives: Help match the grant so the Center can continue its valuable contribution to the Photographic community! The 2016 PIE Tech Labs is a new educational program that will examine technology from an unconventional point of view. It will unpack and convey an array of immutable technologies, tools and techniques, that transcend the common, ever-changing technologies found in most photography programs today, empowering the artist to drive technology, not the reverse.

Center for Photographic Art - Underwater Exhibit

Last week Kim and I went to the Center for Photographic Art to see the current show
"--Deeper-- Explorations in Ocean Light, Black and White Photographs" 

Photos by Scott Campbell, Chuck Davis, Art Haseltine, Camille Lenore, Robin V. Robinson & Ryuijie 
Curator: William Giles
October 27, 2012 through January 5, 2013

We really enjoyed the show and highly recommend you all go in for a viewing.

From the Monterey County Weekly:

Curator William Giles—who's studied and worked with Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lang and Hollis Todd—assembles a strong line-up of local underwater photographers in this show of black-and-white ocean images that rely less on representation than on interpretation, is focused on the feelings evoked rather than the information relayed, and captures rather than unveils mystery and wonder. They are beautiful pictures. They come from the watertight cameras of Scott Campbell, Chuck Davis, Art Haseltine, Camille Lenore, Robin V. Robinson and Ryuijie.

Kim Weston Painting on Photographs

Kim Weston Painting on Photographs

Kim Weston has been painting on his photographs for over 5 years now. He started painting on his small 4x5 Platinum Photographs after our friend, photographer Ryuijie taught him the process. Kim loved learning how to print with platinum. He always believed the process was difficult to learn so he had always shied away from it. Ryuijie told him it was easy and that he could teach him in an afternoon. He was right!

Center for Creative Photography

In February Kim and Zach flew out to Phoenix for a week long of Photography related events. Kim and Randy Efros gave a gallery talk/tour on the Brett Weston (1911-1993) and Sonya Noskowiak (1900-1975) Exhibition. They had such good attendance they had to move the venue to a bigger lecture hall, they showed work at a private home In-Salon gathering.
