The Bainbridge Island Photo Club will screen the documentary film “Eloquent Nude” at the club’s meeting in February.

The club will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26 at Waterfront Park Community Center.

The film website IMDb says the motion picture “presents a remarkable true story of love and loss, travel and adventure, and an intimate look at the making of modern photography.”

Along with his circle of friends — Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham and Dorethea Lange — Edward Weston would develop a modern aesthetic and shape American photography in the 20th century. His sensuous and precise images would create a new way to look at landscapes, still lifes and the human form. In Charis Wilson, Weston would find a model, a muse, and collaborator to see him through the most productive years of his creative career.

The public is welcome and there is no admission. The club will also provide the popcorn.
