Weston and I met in October of 2015. Later in the week I ended up getting tickets to a Weezer concert for Friday night a day before our scheduled date. Edward Weston was a vital pioneer of Modernist photography, who helped elevate the status of his chosen medium to that of a revered art form. No weird pick up line? However, God had a different idea for our first date. Shortly after we matched he sent me a message. Her head rests on her knee, parted hair directed towards the viewer, her face obscured.
Date 1 was good and date 2 was even better. I thought we were going to Miami to celebrate his 35th birthday and have dinner with our friends Rodney and Lisa. The date was set for October 10th! His genius as an artist lay in his ability to respond to both with equal passion. He and Wilson took the master bedroom, which boasted a large sundeck overlooking the ocean. Here, in a three-part dedicated series, we explore the story behind an enduring image from the : Nude Charis, Santa Monica by Edward Weston. Our Tinder Game was strong! You swipe right if you like and swipe left if you don't and if you both swipe right then you can message each other.
In 1935, feeling the strain of the Great Depression, Weston, Wilson and his three sons moved into a small house on Mesa Road in Santa Monica. He found early commercial success with a pictorialist style of image-making, using a soft-focus lens to create painterly portraits, but by the 1920s had adopted an increasingly experimental approach to his craft. Wait, I am suppose to be the one that doesn't shut up! We both love football and on that day we watched it all day. And indeed, in this sumptuous and lyrical work, Weston undoubtedly succeeded in making art that could never be executed in any other medium. A year later, he ventured to Mexico with his lover Tina Modotti, where he remained for the next five years, developing the radical stylistic traits that would come to define his later practice. I believe that authenticity captured in an instance is worth saving for a lifetime.
I invited him and he accepted. The Proposal took place in Miami, Florida on August 12, 2017. As we walked along the beach, Weston said that we need some good tunes to listen to. He was born in Chicago in 1886 and began taking pictures after receiving a Kodak Box camera from his father for his 16th birthday. Weston suggested that we walk along the beach with Rodney and Lisa before our dinner reservations. This is the song that played after he told me he loved me for the first time.
It was here that Weston took what is arguably his most iconic photograph of Wilson, Nude Charis, Santa Monica 1936 , a year before they were married. He couldn't believe that I suggested watching football at 11 a. I came across Weston's picture and of course I swiped right!.

I spend my time looking for those hidden moments and less time setting up and posing couples and their party and guests. At the concert Weston couldn't stop talking.
Three football seasons later, here we are! Even then the light was almost overpoweringly bright. Weston moved to California in 1928 and continued to capture everyday objects up-close, from egg slicers and cups to shapely green peppers, to celebrate and elevate the fundamentals of their form.
