    I've got my eye out for the mail, ups, fedex, what ever method is used. I'm eager to get the new book. I think they are fantastic. I wish I had the hard cover editions but glad to get what I have. I was wondering where I hear the phrase "abstract expressionist". When I was looking that the Art Wright DVD I went to the excerpts from several people and there it was, the reference. What a fantastic photographer.

    Book number 4 came today, I sat down and spend some time looking at it. It's one of the best yet, they keep getting better and better, I love to see photographs that I haven't seen before. This is the best way to do it.

    This fourth Lodima Brett Weston book defines a milestone for me. There is a reproduction of a picture in it (Garrapata Beach) which is "better" than the original. At least I like it more. I've never liked that photograph until seeing this interpretation of it. Bravo!

    That being said another issue arises, to wit: did Brett Weston make a print like the reproduction? I know that Lodima prides itself on reproducing the works it publishes exactly as the photographer rendered it, Michael and Paula's personal opinion of a print notwithstanding. When last I spoke with Paula Chamlee she said that they had not liked the way Brett had printed some of the pictures in this portfolio but that they were reproducing them as perfectly as they could anyway as a matter of policy. I'd surely love to see the original from which this one was made.

    The Lodima "interpretation" that you like "better" than the original is the very reason Brett destroyed his negatives. He wanted no "photographic interpretations" made after his death. He didn't take into account book publishers "interpeting" his work. Whether Paula and Micahel like or dislike the way Brett printed any negative is not the issue. If you want to present a book of Brett's work, make the reproductions as Brett visualized his work. As for the image Garrapata Beach, I have handled the original negative and I can't imagine any resulting print being "bad." It is was a beautiful piece of art unto itself.

    I only have the Voyage of the Eye book for comparison with Lodima's Garrapata Beach version. The latter is a higher contrast print. Does anyone here have an original portfolio for comparison? Of course, like most printers, Brett's interpretation of his negative probably varied over time. So can't really pick one to say its the definitive interpretation.

    I would have liked to see a reproduction around that time to see if they could have done the job M&P did. remember your asking for a print look alike from a different media. You can only do so much. I try to scan my prints and match them to the screen. but someone else's screen it may be way off. M&P pride themselves on as perfect a reproduction they can get so we have the ability to enjoy the print without having the original in your hand.

    enjoy

    It got hijacked away by the BW books didn't it?

    Did Brett Weston use very much AZO paper in his time?
