Cristina Iturrioz, Paul Jones, Mille Kalsmose-Hjelmborg, Fran Marti, Juan Mas-Baga, Friedrich Saller, Miguel Soler-Roig, Michou Von Beschwitz, Kim Weston and Philip Young. In 2014 they followed the route that Washington Irving made in Andalusia, nearly two centuries ago. This route runs through the steps followed in 1829 by the romantic American writer and diplomat, fascinated by the wealth and exoticism of the Spanish-Muslim culture. After being exhibited in Tarragona, Barcelona and Ibiza, the show now arrives to Seville in its second year of scheduled tour around Spain, in museums and institutions.
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.

Kim and I want to wish you all a happy and very prosperous New Year. 2015 was a very exciting year with many workshops and travels to Barcelona Spain, Shanghai China, and Paris France. We want to take this time to thank all of you that have supported us in so many ways these past years. I have said it before but will say it again and again. Thank you for buying our photographs. Thank you for attending our workshops. Thank you for being the best models - Larva, Sara, Nymph, Charlene Muse, Jennifer Jones, St. Merrique, Meglan, Dasha, Catherine Weiss, Eva, Aleska, Aleks, Anastasia and Mikki Marvel. Thank you for keeping in touch with us. Thank you for helping us carry on the Weston Photography Legacy.
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. :)
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.
The August Print of the Month was made on our 2013 visit to France. This specially priced 8x10 photograph is available for $300 for the month of August. Thank you to our loyal Print of the Month Subscribers! The summer in Carmel has been quite nice. The sun has been shining and the garden is growing! Kim has started to work in his studio again. Building and painting sets. He is very inspired, especially after visiting our friend David Ligare's show at the Crocker Museum. It's interesting to watch the progression of Kim's work, what inspires him and who influences his vision.
