Tina Modotti, initially a silent film actress, became an important photographer.
This is one of three dozen negatives Weston made of the former actress reciting poetry in a single sitting, which they both considered very successful. “We have been like a couple of happy excited children, Tina and I, over the results of our recent sitting,” he wrote. This is a contact print; the camera he used produced 3 1/4 x 4 1/4-inch negatives.
