As I returned yesterday from a ski trip to Whistler (Vancouver, Canada) I turned on the TV and noticed that there was a documentary about photography called “The Genius Of Photography”, further research showed that it is photography week on Ovation TV.
The Eloquent Nude
She was beautiful, smart, and searching. He was an emerging genius in the world of photography. When they met, they fell instantly in love. Setting off across the West with camera and typewriter in the depths of the Great Depression, Charis Wilson and Edward Weston transformed photography, and each other. Now age 90, Charis Wilson recounts her years with Weston with great humor, candor, and some regret. She recalls the adventure they set out on and collaborations with photographer Ansel Adams. Combining insight from leading scholars, rare archival images, and convincingly authentic reenactments, Eloquent Nude presents a remarkable true story of love and loss, travel and adventure, and an intimate look at the making of Modern photography.
Why would you wanted to know about this? William Claxton, a very famous jazz photographer is profiled, there is a segment about The Eloquent Nude and The True Meaning of Pictures. Whenever our community is featured we should notice and support these efforts. So get the TIVO ready!
