    Edward Weston

    Does anyone know which brand or kind of enlarger Edward Weston used?

    A light bulb on a peg board with a handkerchief wrapped around it and a contact printing frame.

    He sometimes duped smaller format negs made with a Graflex reflex camera to 8x10" and contact printed those, but he didn't use an enlarger in general.

    Weston was primarily a contact printer. When he wished to make enlarged 8x10 negatives to contact print from his Graflex negs, he used his view camera.

    This month's Lenswork has an interview with Kim Weston, and the CD version will have a tour of Edward's darkroom which is preserved, in Kim Weston's home (formerly Edward's).

    I think that anyone who has seen EW's darkroom is struck by its utter simplicity. No fancy equipment. So one really can work without analysers and fancy timers, etc.

    There is an excellent film called "The Photographer" that shows Weston in the darkroom. Lightbulb. Contact printing frame. No handkerchief though. I notice that he stops dodging just long enough to get to the bulb switch to turn it off...

    Brett Weston used an enlarger.

    Best,

    Shoot, I wanted to get an enlarger just like Edwards. OK then, does anyone know what lens that is on the Korona? 11X14 Gundlach Radar?

    g'day Curt

    it's not about what he used, but how he used it

    you should be concerned with what you've got and how are you going to use it
