WESTON GALLERY Est. 1975
Gallery Storefront in Carmel, California

LEGACY

Established in 1975, the Weston Gallery is owned and operated by Matthew Weston (a grandson of Edward Weston) and his wife Davika "Davi" Weston. The Weston Gallery was founded by Margaret “Maggi” Weston and 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 has played a critical role in the creation of today's photographic market.

We are a world leader in the field of fine vintage and contemporary photography. This 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. Please contact us for general or specific inquires.

At this time, we are not accepting new artist submissions. We cannot be held responsible for returning unsolicited works. Thank you.

Three framed (in brown wood) vintage photographs from the 19th century are featured on a wall, lit from above. It is a photograph of one of our back galleries.
 

 
A number of black and white photographs hang on the wall, all framed in black and hard to see what the subjects are. This is meant to display a method of hanging and promote selling and consigning with us. There are three 8 x 10 approx. inch photographs matted and framed to 16 x 20 approximately. They are evenly spaced on two walls, two separated by two 8 x 10 (16 x 20 matted) hanging above one another. To the right are two very small contact prints about 4 x 5 and then four even smaller works about 2 x 3 inches, all framed a bit larger and hanging in a column, followed by the one 8 x 10 inch and finally Paul Strand works about 4 x 5 and hanging in a column.
