Just received my copy of "Edward Weston LIFE WORK" from Michael and Paula's Lodima (Amidol backwards, btw hehe) Press. Stunning is the only and very limited word that comes to mind. Many years ago, I was able to see an extensive exhibit of Weston's work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. The prints made an indelible impression and I have to say the reproductions in this book are nearly facsimiles to the extent memory serves. (I also get to see and even pick up, hold and examine some at the AIPAD show in NYC every February.)
But in addition, since the book was several months late in being sent for reasons beyond the control of Lodima, I was also sent a complimentary copy of Micheal's book, "The Students of Deep Springs College". Who the hell does that anymore if they ever in fact did? Hence...an appreciation. I will never hesitate to deal with Michael and Paula's enterprises whenever I have the wherewithal to purchase something that seems interesting. I'm IMPRESSED!
