Edward Weston: American Photographer « Monterey Museum of Art

A heads up from Lou Beaudet about a new photography exhibition in Monterey. Here is the description from the Monterey Museum of Art:

"This exhibition is organized from major museum and private collections and will feature vintage prints of Weston’s most famous and admired photographs along with rare images not widely exhibited.

Edward Weston was among the most significant American artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition will span the most prolific decades of his career. Born in Highland Park, Illinois, Weston came to California in 1926, where he began the work for which he is justly famous: sharply-focused black and white photographs of seashells, vegetables, landscapes, portraits and nudes. In 1929, Weston moved to Carmel and created the first of many photographs of the dramatic rocks and trees at Point Lobos. Soon thereafter, he became one of the founding members of Group f/64—a pioneering circle of photographers that included Ansel Adams and Imogen Cunningham. Widely renowned during his lifetime, Weston became the first photographer to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship for experimental work in 1936."


It begins on June 17. 
The exhibition will be on view at the Monterey Museum of Art-La Mirada located at 720 Via Mirada,Monterey, California, 93940.

Digital Nature Photography Course

Our friends at the Palo Alto Camera Club are sponsoring again with the City of Palo Alto a nature photography course that will talk about nature photography as well as some great places to shoot nature photos in the Bay Area.

It looks like you don't need to go to the Serengeti to get great Nature photos. They are to be had here, too; though you might not find a giraffe walking through the streets of Palo Alto. Potentially, a mountain lion...but not a giraffe.

Below are some details from the City's 'Enjoy' catalog dated 2-18-10 and the course fee for non-residents of Palo Alto is $200. You can find out more details here at the Palo Alto Camera Club site.
