Telfair Museum Features Edward Weston

On March 2nd the Telfair Museum in Savannah GA opened an exhibition titled: Bonaventure: A Historic Cemetery in Art, it will run until September 23, 2018. Lumière was pleased to loan a photograph of the iconic cemetery taken by Edward Weston for the exhibition.

In May of 1941 Weston and his recent bride Charis Wilson began a trip working on a commission to illustrate a new edition of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. The journey would cover 20,000 miles through 24 states, after the attack of Pearl Harbor in December they curtailed the project and returned to California. During this trip Weston took between 700 and 800 8×10 negatives as well as dozens of Graflex portraits.

What was the House of Photography? Berenice Abbott created this commercial venture to bring her many ideas and inventions to market. But was it a success?
