This iconic portrait of Cole Weston's father, Edward, was made during one of many outings on Point Lobos in 1946. At this time, Edward was struggling to photograph on his own due to the advance of Parkinson's, so Cole became his field assistant (until Dody Thompson took over the following year). Cole and Edward would trade off using the camera, leading to the late masterpiece, "North Dome, Point Lobos, 1946", which represents a collaboration between son and father. This affectionate portrait signifies the love of place and craft shared by two of the medium's most devoted practitioners. This print was made in or before 1982, as is indicated by Cole's copyright stamp mount verso. Signed and dated 1946 in pencil mount recto.
