    The link above should get you to Lodima Press which is printing all the portfolios of Brett Weston. The printing quality is excellent.

    Brett did make 20x24 prints, however not many. They were made quite late in his career. I bet Jerry's collection is a feast for the eyes!
    I got an email from Jerry saying that he is giving up photography. I think his health is slowly failing. He also never got over his cat passing. He loved that cat so much. Its sad. Jerry was working on a book on the new deal farm security Association. I hope he finishes it.

    Thanks, Robert, for the update on Jerry. Sorry to hear that he is not doing well. That thought had crossed my mind as I never heard back after congratulating him on his "Photography,History & Science book". By the way, the chapter on the Weston's is a good read for those interested in Brett and his father. Jerry knew Brett well and writes from personal experience, not from hearsay. So much garbage has been written by individuals who never knew Edward or Brett. Published by Carl Mautz Publishing, 2006, author Gerald Robinson.

    Curt, I apologize for taking your thread in a different direction. I have been away for a few weeks photographing in Canada, and any mention of Brett gets my attention.

    Mathias and I met in 1982 at Brett's home and share a similar love for the man and his photography. Thanks for making the link to his site.

    No need to apologize, I know that I and a lot of members here enjoy hearing the personal stories and annotations. When I saw the Mthias site I thought I needed to share it with those who weren't aware of it. I still get a kick out of the Art Wright film where you are photographing at Point Lobos. That's a lot of bellows extension there. I was surprised to find that Brett found Oregon such a great place that he wanted to have a house there. I was in Newport, OR a month ago, the Oregon coast is a place of its own.
    Thanks all for such a delightful conversation.
