    I haven't seen it but would really like to. I wonder if they ever sold it as a DVD? Guess I'll check with MOPA here in San Diego and see if they know.

    A great DVD, narrated by Jack Lemon. Photographers of today, whether they follow in its tradition or react against, still feel the impact of the unofficial California school of photography.

    "Monterey Bay Area photographers who profoundly influenced the world"


    As beautiful as California is and undoubtedly was, these proclamations of self importance tends to make me lose interest.

    I have one on order too, in addition to books I enjoy DVDs on photography of all kinds, foreign and domestic. Freestyle has the history of photography on two DVDs that's fast paced and very comprehensive, one needs to keep an open mind and read, watch and take in all points of view, it's truly an international adventure.

    I received the DVD I ordered from eBay today. It is one hour of pure information, the interviews with Cole Weston, Kim Weston, older interviews with Brett Weston, Ansel Adams and a wide range of artists and photographers are discussed. A Canadian born artist, Henrietta Shore, and may women who contributed are also given consideration, which is not always the case. Kim Weston shows how his dad used the darkroom, many cameras, darkrooms and methods are shown. This is a great addition to my library. The interview with Cole is especially interesting, he talks about his dad getting color materials from Kodak and how he started using it and developed his interest in color. Jack Lemmon gives a fantastic narration which carries it right along.

    Henrietta Shore (1880-1963)
    Henrietta Shore was born in Toronto, Canada in 1863. Her art studies were at the Art Students League in New York and at the Heatherly Art School in London where she befriended John Singer Sargent. Shore is remembered as a major figure among women Modernists. In 1913 she helped found the Society of Modern Artists in Los Angeles where she exhibited until approximately 1920 when she left for New York and Europe. She achieved international acclaim in her lifetime for her modernist still lifes, portraits and especially her floral paintings which were compared to O’Keeffe’s. Henrietta Shore was a resident of Carmel when she died in 1963.

    What is the date of this video? I would assume '60s or '70s?
    Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.

    The date is 2002. I gotta kinda disagree with you Mr Callow. I'm not a huge fan of saint Ansel but 99% of people I know would only be able to name him if asked who is a famous photographer. Not too self important really.
