    Great, thank you for posting this. The photographer that I admire the most.

    Interesting indeed. Having had the pleasure of visiting Point Lobos a few years ago, I can attest that (at least in my case) Weston's "presence" was palpable. Awesome artist he was. (but I think his son Brett was better - gasp!).

    I don't recognize a few of those images. Have they all been published? If so, where?

    Nice link, thanks.

    Darin, which images do you not recognize? There is only one that I have not seen published, however it is in the UC Santa Cruz collection (from the Print Project).

    Yes, thanks for the link.

    Hey Merg,

    The nude and the reading on the house shot, especially. Maybe I need to get out my Weston books again--or buy a few new ones! (But which ones?)

    His best stuff was at the end, he anticipated the New Topographics and Emmit Gowin and Sally Mann 40-50 years ahead of time. Those six shots are great, late stuff. You can even tell that Charis was dumping him in some of the other later photos.

    The nude photograph (Winter Idyll, 1945) is reproduced in "The Flame of Recognition" which is an Aperture monograph. Charis reading on the roof of Bodie house is in "The Cats of Wildcat Hill" book.

    Thanks. Somehow I don't own the Aperture book (but used to look at it in the library, years ago). Don't have and have never seen the "Cats" book.

    Time to go shopping...
