Blood Sweat and Tears.
or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Fashion.

Photographs by Bruce Weber. Edited by Herausgegeben von Bruce Weber, Nan Bush, Sherri Wasserman and Dimitri Levas.
teNeues, New York, 2005. 448 pp., 107 color illustrations, 216 b&w illustrations, and 21 toned photographs, 10½x14¼".

This mammoth and lavishly produced monograph focuses on the equally mammoth and illustrious career of Bruce Weber, paying tribute to his journey through and contribution to fashion photography with images from his advertising and magazine shoots. Known critically for his liberation of the male nude, Weber’s mastery at portraying the male body as an object of spectacle and great beauty is apparent throughout. For those of us who have enjoyed seeing the gigantic Abercrombie & Fitch ads on 5th Avenue of men in their jeans with carefully arranged bulges and hands around the zipper, this book will be a particular pleasure. Weber’s eye for the way that clothing, especially underwear, is animated by the body and his genius for well-placed shadows, makes for some of the most tantalizing photographs of men ever created. Beyond the male figures, the book also features equally elegant shots of model beauties around the world, as well as Weber’s whimsical animal fashion portraits. In Weber’s world, fashion is not simply shaped by clothes, but by the body and spirit that inhabit them. His choice of models, settings and activities showcases the all- American aesthetic he has almost single-handedly created, with all of the easy glamour and classic-Greek-sculpture- cum-college-fraternity-casualness we recognize from Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren ads.
