Bruce Weber: My Education

Curator: Helena Musilová

Bruce Weber is best known for his photo series featured in fashion magazines such as Vogue, GQ, W Magazine, The Interview and Vanity Fair, and for his collaborations with leading brands such as Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. His photographs often capture young women and men in sporty, daring and intimate moments. In addition to fashion photography, the exhibition at the Stone Bell House (GHMP) will equally highlight his portraiture, reportage and landscape work as well as music and fashion videos and feature films. Weber continuously photographs important cultural and political figures, with some of his most famous images including unique portraits of Nelson Mandela, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois.

The exhibition Bruce Weber: My Education will also cover Weber’s work in the Czech Republic where he photographed a series with Heath Ledger in 2000. He also repeatedly collaborated with celebrities of Czech descent, such as Eva Herzigová and Martina Navrátilová.

Weber’s photographs from Detroit and the “Little Hanoi” community in Miami are also worthy of attention. Weber has the ability to narrate stories of people in an engaging way – he is one of the last of the ‘old school photographers’. His repertoire also encompasses a focus on nature and animals, and notably a celebrated series on golden retrievers, leading to the creation of a dedicated picture book, The Golden Retriever Photographic Society, published by Taschen.
