Bruce Weber  (American, 1946) 

whitespace
Bruce Weber (American, b.1946) is perhaps best known for his fashion photography for major magazines such as GQ, and household American brand names such as Calvin Klein and Abercrombie & Fitch. With a body of work that expands beyond wholly commercial projects, Weber is credited with bringing the male body into the public spotlight during the 1980s, as both a fashion medium and a subject of Fine Art. With his casual photographs of handsome, fresh, and athletic American youth, Weber changed the world’s perception of masculinity. Weber has also earned acclaim for his film making, including Broken Noses (1987), a documentary about boxer Andy Minsker; Let’s Get Lost (1989), a documentary about Chet Baker, which was nominated for an Academy Award for best feature documentary; Chop Suey (2001), a feature on wrestler Peter Johnson; and A Letter to True (2004), an anti-war documentary which opened at the Berlin Film Festival and showed as an official selection at the Tribeca, Toronto, and Edinburgh film festivals.
