We have been building photographic collections since 1975. The Weston Gallery is located in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, where our legacy, as part of the Weston Family, is rooted. We have been honoring the photographic trailblazers who have called Carmel and Big Sur home including Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Morley Baer, Cole Weston, Brett Weston, Arnold Genthe, Johan Hagemeyer as well as artist, painters, actors, writers and poets including Henrietta Shore, Robinson Jeffers, Armin Hansen, Paul Whitman, Jack London, Joan Fontaine, Bing Crosby, John Steinbeck (Salinas Valley), Clint Eastwood and Doris Day. To this day, the enclave of this Northern California mecca continues to be a destination for contemporary, world-renowned photographers.
Established in 1975, by Margaret "Maggi" Weston, the Weston Gallery opened with a one-man show of the works, and at the urging of her dear friend, Ansel Adams. Along with a handful of pioneering photographic dealers, Maggi's role as a gallerist played a critical role in the creation of today's photographic market. Now owned and operated by her son Matthew Weston (a grandson of Edward Weston) and his wife Davika "Davi" Weston, the Weston Gallery is a world leader in the field of fine vintage and contemporary photography. Our position of leadership stems from our deep dedication to the medium and we deal specifically in photographs as works of art. We emphasize those works which we feel are important to the overall history of 19th, modernist and 20th, as well as contemporary photography. We are fortunate to have an extensive inventory and a wealth of knowledge to assist any collector.
