The Weston Collective’s executive director, Zach Weston, said about this year’s exhibition: “I’m so inspired by the commitment our local photography teachers have to the artistic success of their students. The dedication they show to the preservation of traditional photographic processes makes our work possible and the quality of the prints their students submit to the Weston Scholarship never ceases to amaze me. I’m honored to have the opportunity to work with such an incredible group of artists, educators, and supporters who make it possible for us to keep the Weston legacy thriving in Monterey County.”
