Want to see where and how one of the legends of photography processed their photos? Here’s a 14-minute video that takes us on a tour of Edward Weston’s darkroom (note: there’s brief nudity).
After visiting Weston’s home with his grandson Kim Weston, photographer Marc Silber of Advancing Your Photography then stepped into the inner sanctum where so many of Weston’s iconic prints were made.
“Take a step back in time into Edward Weston’s darkroom, and then come forward with us to get a tour of it from his grandson Kim Weston,” AYP writes. “Hear secrets of how he developed and printed his elegant prints, that had his own unique simple approach. You’ll also hear stories that will amaze you about him as a person and as an artist.”
With a mix of old and new footage, the video gives us a fascinating glimpse into the life and work of one of the masters of 20th-century photography.
