Bruce Weber’s iconic photography first graced the pages of GQ Magazine in the 1970’s, and he soon rose to prominence with the Calvin Klein campaign featuring Tom Hintnaus in Greece. Weber’s signature stripped-back black and white photography captured the spirit of the moment, and he has endured as one of the most iconic and celebrated photographers of his age.

Like all true creators Weber has never been satisfied with one outlet, constantly looking for new ways to explore his medium. Films like Chop Suey played with cinema and photography to create a new kind of introspection, whilst documentaries like Let’s Get Lost and Broken Noses have won him an Oscar nomination and numerous international accolades.

His multiple books have served to spotlight how influential his insight into the contemporary condition is. Collector’s items like A House Is Not A Home and Bear Pond have highlighted Weber’s artful and intimate documentary style, and to date Weber has published over 37 books and held over 60 exhibitions world-wide.

This broad sweep of interests is anchored by his erotic and risqué but always uniquely stylish portraits; models, musicians, actors, artists and creators of all kind come alive in his vast catalog of work.

Dame Natalie Massenet, British Fashion Council Chairman commented:

“Bruce’s endurance is testament to his pure talent, his undeniable creativity and his singular warmth and generosity. His expansive body of work in photography and film is iconic, and he himself is rightly an icon of the creative fashion community.

He is one of the foremost photographers and creative talents of our age who has helped shape the fashion industry we know today and I have a great deal of admiration for him.”
