"Bruce Weber is renowned for revolutionizing fashion photography and the same formal elements that make his fashion and celebrity photographs so forceful contribute to the impact of his Haitian photographs. As Bonnie Clearwater notes, 'The strong sense that the figures exist in real space and can be touched, caressed, and embraced makes us feel as though we know or would like to know each of these individuals, and consequently we become concerned with their fate.' 'In his fashion shoots he captures what he sees in the models – beauty, youth, strength. This holds true as well for his Haitian photographs. These images convey what he sees and admires in the Haitian children and adults he photographs, — their strength, pride, resilience, elegance and beauty,'Clearwater said."
