  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1929, the same year Edward and Brett Weston opened their portrait studio in Carmel, California, Brett took this compelling image of close family friend Ramiel McGehee. McGehee, a writer, was a very good and trusted friend of Edward's and as Weston described in his Daybooks “He alone from out of the potpourri of friends and acquaintances has emerged a definite clear-cut figure from whom I cannot part…” Another print of this image is in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
