Eloquent Nude

Eloquent Nude: The Love and Legacy of Edward Weston and Charis Wilson explores the relationship of renowned photographer Edward Weston and Charis Wilson, his wife, model, and muse.

Charis was beautiful, smart, and searching. Edward 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.

At 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 creative medium of photography. Eloquent Nude was the recipient of three Northwest Regional Emmy Awards in 2008.
