Stephen Goldstine’s Self-portrait with Edward Weston taken at Weston’s Wildcat Hill home on the Monterey Peninsula. As a 13 year old, Goldstine had crossed paths with Ansel Adams on SF’s Baker Beach where they began to discuss the technical aspects of photography equipment which led Ansel to encourage young Stephen to attend classes with Minor White at the School. This started Goldstine’s life-long relationship with SFAI, eventually becoming its President in 1978. Stephen presented Ansel an Honorary Doctorate at SFAI’s 1979 wind-blown Commencement as pictured above
