My Little Grey Home in the West - 1943
This photograph was taken during a time that highlights Edwards frustration with the closing of Point Lobos due to World War II. With his photographic playground off limits, Weston started setting up scenes on Wildcat Hill. To many, this new direction was very surprising, as it was nothing like his usual style.
The above two images were also taken around the same time on Wildcat Hill. You can see Edward's playful arrangement of props in each photograph.
Charis had a fond recollection of the Little Grey Home in the West photograph:
The photograph is taken behind the main house on Wildcat Hill at the south end of "Bodie House" which was at one time Charis' writing studio. It is currently used as a photography location during our Wildcat Studio Nude Workshops!
