Kim Weston has been a fine art photographer for 30 years specializing in large format photographs. His main body of work consists of silver contact prints made from 8×10 negatives. In addition to the 8×10 format he prints in 11×14 and 16×20 sizes. Kim also photographs with a Mamiya 67 that he inherited from his father Cole Weston. He prints in Platinum and lately he has added paint to his photographs.

Kim is a third-generation member of one of the most important and creative families in photography., He learned his craft assisting his father Cole  in the darkroom making gallery prints from his grandfather Edward’s original negatives. Kim also worked for many years as an assistant to his uncle Brett, whose bold, abstract photographs rank as some of the finest examples of modern photographic art.

 Artist Statement:

“My painted photographs have given me a release from surface importance and visual certainty. I can take my image and tweak it to another dimension which if I think about it was my original direction and interpretation of the subject to begin with.”
