Bruce Weber

Photographer and filmmaker Bruce Weber was born in Greensburg, Pennsylvania in 1946. He moved to New York City, studying film at New York University (NYU), and photography with Lisette Model at the New School. Weber first rose to international prominence in the early eighties on the success of images that combined classical styling with more visceral underpinnings of desire, mood and sexuality. His ability to construct a seamless sense of romance and drama created the central public images for fashion houses like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Versace, and most recently Abercrombie and Fitch, and earned him an enduring presence as a contributor to magazines at the very highest levels in the industry.

Throughout his career, Weber has worked in various forms – he directed seven short and feature length films, published more than 21 books and has held more than 60 exhibitions worldwide – extending his lifelong exploration of the nature of human relationships.
