Eloquent Nude: The Love and Legacy of Edward Weston & Charis Wilson
“It’s that same feeling you get looking at an old photograph, seeing a moment forever lost and eternally present. That’s the love story of Eloquent Nude.”
--The Willamette Week
She was beautiful, smart, and searching. He was an emerging genius in the world of photography. When they met, they fell instantly in love. Setting off across the West with camera and typewriter in the depths of the Great Depression, Charis Wilson and Edward Weston transformed photography, and each other.
Now age 90, Charis Wilson recounts her years with Weston with great humor, candor, and some regret. Combining insight from leading scholars, rare archival images, and convincingly authentic reenactments, Eloquent Nude presents a remarkable true story of love and loss, travel and adventure, and an intimate look at the making of Modern photography.
