Imagining Tina
A Dialogue with Edward Weston
Maryam Eisler

 

For the Imagining Tina series, the photographer, Maryam Eisler reimagined the passionate love affair between the great American photographer Edward Weston and fellow photographer, muse, lover, and activist Tina Modotti. Eisler attempted to relive Edward and Tina’s revolutionary and bohemian “Mexico“ years, all the while imagining Tina through Edward’s intimate gaze. Eisler’s camera seeks the sensuous whilst painting contours with shadow and light.

The series was shot on Wildcat Hill in Carmel, California, where Edward Weston lived from 1938 until his death in 1958. The “Little Grey Home in the West” is now home to Edward’s grandson, fine art photographer, Kim Weston and his wife, Gina.

The series consists of 30 sensual monochrome Platinum prints produced by the master Platinum printer, Martin Axon, whose craft has been used by many of the big names in the industry, among them Robert Maplethorpe, Host P. Horst, Annie Leibowitz and Patrick Demarchelier. The process involves printing on natural deckled edge Arches Platine paper, especially commissioned by Martin at the Arches paper mill in France.
