In October 1924, Weston made a series of images of Tina reciting. He describes the session at length in his Daybooks.
Tina sat to me yesterday morning. We had long planned that I should do her as I have often seen her, quoting poetry - to attempt the registration of her remarkably mobile face in action. There was nothing forced in this attempt, she was soon in a mood which discounted me and my camera - or did she subconsciously feel my presence and respond to it? Within twenty minutes I had made three dozen Graflex negatives and caught her sensitive face with every subtle change. (Daybooks I, Mexico, p. 95.)
