Let's imagine any one of us could have been heading north along the coast of California in 1933. The Great Depression is a reality but we are fortunate enough to make ends meet and a little more. Aware of trends in contemporary art and interested in photography, it is likely that the name Edward Weston is familiar. Passing through Carmel, EW's name is spotted on his large mailbox at the side of Highway One. The decision is made to stop and see if anyone is home. Fortunately Edward is in the yard and after introductions, he offers to show his guests some work. Do you think you would respond to the work and artist when history was still being made and the work was new and challenging? You have no idea of the role this photography and EW will ultimately play in 20th Century art. How you react is entirely up to what you see and feel at that very moment. You have the money in your pocket but "discretionary income" is a concept that will have to wait a few decades before it's time has come. You would feel it going and EW would surely feel it coming. Nothing is taken for granted. Do you think you would know what you were looking at and would you buy a print for $10?
