Are you planning for some time off? Come and stay at Wildcat Hill in Bodie House this summer! The season is in full swing. What a great spring we have had so far. We had 2, 4 Generation Weston Shows hung consecutively at the same time, one at Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento and one at the Scott Nichols Gallery in San Francisco.Both shows came down on June 4. We hope you had a chance to see some of the photographs. Thank you to the Viewpoint Gallery and to the Scott Nichols Gallery. And thanks to all that attended!

We have taught 2 Nude Photo Workshops, where we made some wonderful images, photographed with some talented artists and worked with our talented models, Jennifer Jones, Sara Streeter and a new model, Marian Liddell. It was a great experience.

We are getting ready for our Four Generations of Weston: Black and White at the Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento. If the attendance is anything like it was at the National Steinbeck Center in 2014, we are in for a great celebration. There will be 2 openings. One will be an Invitational Artists Reception on Friday April 8, 6-8:30PM. The second opening will be the public opening on Saturday April 9 5-9PM. It will coincide with 2nd Saturday Art Walk in downtown Sacramento, when galleries and local businesses host an open house evening starting from 5:30-9PM. The Viewpoint Gallery will be showing the DVD "Growing up Weston" for a select group on Saturday afternoon.

We know many of you will not be able to attend so we wanted to share some of the photographs that will be in the show. Over 70 silver gelatin black and white photographs will be on view from Wednesday, April 6 to June 4, 2016. We hope you enjoy them and please make a point to come and say hello if you are coming to any of the openings or attending the Growing up Weston - film screening.

Happy Birthday! Edward Weston, March 24, 1886

Happy Birthday! Edward Weston, March 24, 1886

Happy Birthday Edward Weston! 1886-1958 Edward Weston meets Margrethe Mather 1913 As I started researching Edward Weston's life around the 1913's, I realized it was when he met and started working with Margrethe Mather. I went straight to our bookshelf and read "Margrethe Mather and Edward Weston, A Passionate Collaboration" by Beth Gates Warren. We saw the exhibition at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 2003. It was an excellent show and I am so happy we took the time to go and see it. Margrethe was a photographer, mentor, lover and inspiration to Edward. Here are some photos by Edward Weston and Margrethe Mather from 1914 - 1920's. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Happy Birthday GP!

Paris Photo 2015

Paris Photo 2015

It has been almost 4 weeks since we returned from Paris, France. We planned our trip there to coincide with The 2015 Paris Photo. We were there during the terrorist attacks that occurred on the evening of Friday the 13th. It was an eery night, as we were sitting at the Mini Palais finishing dinner, everyone including our friends, started getting texts and phone calls. We were told about the terrorist attacks and that the attack was over but we needed to leave the restaurant right away as we were in a high profile target area. The Mini Palais is located in the Grand Palais where Paris Photo was held. Here are some photographs from the Paris Photo show. I have many more of our trip but they will come later. We hope you enjoy them. Thank you to everyone who reached out to us while we were in Paris! We felt the love pouring out. :)

In this 25-minute video Kim takes you into Edward Weston’s original darkroom and shows you the very simple techniques that Edward used throughout his life - a historical journey back in time to see how this master used basic tools to make incredible art.

This negative called “Spring” was photographed at Wildcat Hill in 1943. The nude in the photo is Charis Wilson, Edward’s last wife. Edward Weston photographed many wonderful photographs of Charis around his home during the 1940’s.
