Storyline

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.

Lovely Charis

Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe were great partners in love and art, and now Edward Weston and Charis Wilson have been brought to my attention thanks to this hour-long documentary. The makers have combined the original photos with filmed reenactments of Edward and Charis at work using actors; there is also newsreel footage of soup kitchens and other facts of the Depression. We have color footage of the 91-year old Charis reminiscing about her years with Weston--about ten in all. Altogether it is a fascinating reconstruction of one of the great collaborations in twentieth-century photography.

The photos seem to breathe, they are so vivid. The flesh of her body contrasted with the grey sand in those photos of 1936 has a tremendous erotic power. Thank God for Guggenheim grants.
