|Edward Weston, Pepper No. 30|
Scott put together a unique exhibit of multi-generational Weston talent - Edward and Brett of course, but also amazingly talented Cole, Kay, Cara, Kim, and Zach. It was extremely inspiring. The cherry on top of the exhibit was seeing not only original prints of Pepper No 30 and Nude (Charis) Santa Monica, but side by side prints by Edward and Brett of the same negatives such as Floating Nude, 1939. The old, yellowed, faded original and the 1970s era black and white print by Brett, crisp and clear as if it were taken yesterday. Just fascinating.
Also as I tend to do, I start at the 5th floor and work my way down, taking in Robert Koch, Fraenkel, and other galleries. Always a treat. Koch, another one of my favorite photography galleries, had an exhibit of talented and whimsical Kenneth Josephson prints, also inspiring. Sad to say that much of that building has become dot coms and booksellers instead of galleries. Honestly, I don't have anything against antiquarian books, but my gallery adventures are much shorter now than they used to be.
At any rate, check them out if you are in the area. Happy shooting!
