BRUCE WEBER

Bruce Weber was born in 1946 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. He is an American fashion photographer most widely known for his ad campaigns for Calvin Klein, Pirelli, Abercrombie & Fitch, Revlon, Gianni Versace, and Ralph Lauren, as well as his work for Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Elle, Life, Interview, and Rolling Stone magazines. Soon known as a pioneer of modern male fashion in fine art photography, he came to the attention of the general public in the late 1980s and early 1990s with his advertising images for Calvin Klein. Weber's photographs are occasionally in color, however most are in black and white or toned shades. Bruce Weber brought the image of chiseled male beauty more into the public spotlight. Among others, he is known for his nude photographs of the Brewer twins and the Carlson twins. After making pictures of celebrities Bruce Weber entered the realm of filmmaking with a prize winning documentary on Chet Baker (Let’s get lost) and short films and music video works. His major retrospective in 1998 at the National Portrait Gallery in London came after his first solo show in Italy at Photology Milano (Never never land) in 1994 with his only and rare pocket size book No valet parking (book available for sale).
