Kim Weston

Ah, yes. Light and shadow. The silver gelatin prints above were taken with Kim's father Cole's camera, who was Edward Weston's son. Edward Weston was wonderfully adept at developing shadow and light in simple subject matter, such as the pepper.

Edward was also a great friend of Ansel Adams, whose work I idolize. I've always wanted his photo of the bell pepper in my kitchen. If for nothing else, to exemplify just one of the many ways to fall in love with food.
