Synopsis : "Laughing Eyes" is a collection of letters, family photographs and memorabilia between legendary photographer Edward Weston and his son Cole that provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of the first family of twentieth-century photography - the Westons. Here is a personal account of an artist maturing into his role as one of the great photographers of the century and of a boy growing up through the era of the Great Depression and World War II.
A propos de l'auteur: Paulette Weston attended two Cole Weston workshops, one in North Carolina in 1986 and a second in Hawaii in 1988. She was invited by Cole to return to Carmel to be his assistant for six months while he printed his first portfolio. Cole and Paulette were married three years later.
In 1998 to celebrate Cole's 79th birthday, Paulette collected 30 years of correspondence between Cole and his father Edward and compiled it into a manuscript. She shared her work with a neighboring photographer. It was here that publisher Barbara March discovered the letters and proposed to Cole and Paulette that Carmel Publishing publish them as a book.
