Kim Weston QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of my work comes from my life experiences.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Any nude is a something you setup in front of the camera.
Quotation of Kim Weston
As an artist you have to have a certain amount of arrogance.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Because anyone that is intuitive with art and works at it, the first initial thing you're excited about you refine it, refine it, refine it, and get up to the top and then you start questioning yourself on the backside and that's when you come up with some surprises.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Being a shy person, I always felt strange outside with my camera.
Quotation of Kim Weston
For many years I worked with my father, Cole Weston, helping him print, mount and spot his father, Edward Weston's, negatives.
Quotation of Kim Weston
For the last 20 years I've worked the same way. All nudes, all in the studio. Before that, I was floundering around looking for something, not looking to be different for its own sake, but looking for something that fulfilled my need.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Galleries, and they're all the same, and rightly so, they sell work.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Growing up at Garrapata with Dad, there were always cameras around.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Growing up, I didn't give my grandfather's photography a second thought. I wasn't involved in his work, except that I helped my dad print his negatives.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I can rightly say that, because my passion for the work and my passion to photograph is not equaled by anyone in my generation of Westons.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I come up with an idea. I spend hours drawing up a storyboard. Each scene has elements that interest me. I develop those parts, flesh them out. Then I make a set. I paint the sets in color.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I didn't want to travel. I didn't want to leave my family. I heard all these stories from Dad about not having Edward around when he was young, and I didn't want that to happen.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I don't have an eye like my uncle. He could go out and shrink things down from this huge universe into something so precise, so perfect.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I don't know, the older I get, the more complicated I think I get, which is a hindrance.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I don't need the money I generate from photography to support myself.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I don't think at that time I realized how important it was and how important it was for me to be here and carry on that legacy in our family of being a photographer.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I felt no pressure that my grandfather was famous and my uncle was famous.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I just love photographing. I don't do it for anyone else.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I photographed rocks and trees and tide pools and nudes and all that stuff for years and years. Until 20 years ago when I found that I could do it in the studio and never have to travel.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I think all photographers fit their vision to their personality.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I think the digital camera would record that information too fast for me.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I tried painting for a short time and realized that I was not a child prodigy at painting.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I was a shy child, and I loved going into the darkroom and helping my dad. I loved the darkness, the quiet. I'd sit in there for hours.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I was always confident in my art and in myself as an artist.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I worked with Brett for fifteen years. Photographically, I was closer to him than my dad.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I'm not going to rely on my photography to make money. It never will. I mean it will but I'm not going to make the public determine what I photograph.
Quotation of Kim Weston
I'm not photographing the model in the classic sense; the model is playing a part in my photographs. It's more like theater. I always work with models I know, and I let them participate in deciding how to act their part.
Quotation of Kim Weston
If no one wants to jump into a Kim Weston and drive it down the street. That's fine with me I don't care. I know my work is good and I know it's serious work.
Quotation of Kim Weston
If something is successful then I'm doing something wrong. Because I don't use the public as a judge of my best work.
Quotation of Kim Weston
If you're not going to tell something if you're not going to expose something it's real easy to go in and photograph from behind the camera and not expose any of your weaknesses.
Quotation of Kim Weston
In front of the camera I look and I see visually what I've created.
Quotation of Kim Weston
It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you're fulfilling that inner need, and for me the need is more the process than the finished product. My photographs are stories of the process.
Quotation of Kim Weston
My cousin Mark, who lived in this house most of his adult life, was a photographer for quite a few years, but gave it up.
Quotation of Kim Weston
My son does a little photography, but he's not involved the way I was.
Quotation of Kim Weston
My surprises come usually once I start rolling and photographing.
Quotation of Kim Weston
My type of lifestyle and my type of personality doesn't like to go out in the public and is basically very shy.
Quotation of Kim Weston
No matter how fast I could do it with the digital camera I don't think I would get the same thing out of it. The passion I have for formulating an idea stands alone. It is the important essence of what I do.
Quotation of Kim Weston
That's not to say that some day I won't go outside again, but I'm having a great time working on this process.
Quotation of Kim Weston
That's why I love the portraits so much, self-portraits. It's an honest straightforward description of what I'm thinking at that time and that one's great.
Quotation of Kim Weston
The darkroom is just the means to an end.

The gallery is generating work for the masses.
Quotation of Kim Weston
The great thing about this thing we call art is that it has no rules.
Quotation of Kim Weston
The studio work helps me in two ways: I don't have to go out with my camera and have people look at me, and I can be close to my family.
Quotation of Kim Weston
To me, that is the essence of me as a photographer. It is those ideas, working with them, formulating them and eventually putting them down on paper, photographing them and then going on to the next step.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Uncle Brett had a definite vision that he was after, I don't think having a famous father affected him much.
Quotation of Kim Weston
We all take from our artistic endeavors what we as individuals need, to make the process unique and fulfilling to ourselves.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Well, now I'm an old photographer and I still don't sell.
Quotation of Kim Weston
What I had to prove was that I had a dedication and a desire and a passion to do the work and everything else would fall in place because I have a vision that I want to portray and it did and I do it. I don't sell anything.
Quotation of Kim Weston
When I look at a painting there is so much left for my interpretation to work with. It's like they haven't finished the idea. The painter hasn't.
Quotation of Kim Weston
Where in photography, maybe it's just because I've seen so much photography, I don't see a photograph anywhere I would elaborate on.
Quotation of Kim Weston
You work on an idea, your first interpretation is very raw and you work it and you work it and it gets polished and polished. It gets to a certain level and then it comes down off that peak.
