Robert Werling was a good friend with the master photographers of the West Coast from 1966 when he met Ansel Adams through 2003 when the last of these masters died. Imogen Cunningham was the first to die in 1976 and Cole Weston was the last in 2003. Bob often told entertaining stories about photographing and working with those friends. Since Bob is the last of that genre using the old masters printing processes with silver gelatin, I thought it most appropriate to tell his stories in his own words.

I added historic information including letters, postcards, and historic documents along with photographs to bring this time of photography to life. That period of history is gone but should not be forgotten. Hope you enjoy reading about Ansel Adams, Ruth Bernhard, Imogen Cunningham, Brett Weston, Cole Weston, and Marion Post Wolcott.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your book, Master Photographers I Remember. What a tribute to West Coast photographers, Bob's "photographic memory, " and his friendly personality I recall from visits and field trips. It's sad that so many of them have passed on. However, this memoir captures the exciting climate of those times for future generations of collectors and photographers. I'm happy to have it among the books and memories I treasure.
