Description
Photographer and photo-historian Beaumont Newhall made this portrait of his friend Edward Weston in 1940, when he visited him at home on Wildcat Hill in Carmel, California. After photographing with Weston at nearby Point Lobos, Newhall felt his pictures there were too influenced by Weston. He decided to tackle a fresh subject, instead: Weston’s house. Among the images he made were Weston’s coffee grinder and kitchen, along with this portrait of the artist looking out of the window in his darkroom.
