Eloquent Nude

ARTS CHANNEL – Friday 25 January, 9.20pm

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 humour, candour, and some regret. Combining insight from leading scholars, rare archival images, and convincingly authentic re-enactments, Eloquent Nude presents a remarkable true story of love and loss, travel and adventure, and an intimate look at the making of Modern photography.
