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.
Have you always wanted to visit Wildcat Hill and see Edward Weston's Darkroom? Here is your chance! 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.
Here on the Monterey Peninsula, film and wet darkrooms are still alive as new generation fine art photographers Kodiak Greenwood, Michelle Magdalena and Zach Weston both continue and expand upon the legacy of the great West Coast photographers who pioneered this medium and evolved its traditions before them. Please join us on March 14, 2015, for a Discussion Panel from 4 to 5pm in Carpenter Hall and then the opening in the Center for Photographic Art Gallery in Carmel CA from 5-7pm. Hope to see you there.
Today I am updating the Kim Weston Archive section on the website. It's a simple way to view many of Kim Weston's photographs at once. It took months of researching themes to find one that fit my need for simplicity and ease, with a fresh modern look. I also needed one that you can view on your smartphone or tablet. More....
Kim and I hope you enjoy the new work from the Wyoming Nude Photography Workshop in 2013. We were very sorry that we were not to be able to teach there again this year. Logistically it didn't work because we are going to Spain to teach a nude photography workshop there.
