Bruce Weber

An American fashion photographer and filmmaker most widely associated with iconic black-and-white images of heterosexual, all-American men, Weber first rose to national prominence in the late 1980s with a provocative Calvin Klein underwear campaign. His stark, classic, and provocative vision of the American male was replicated in other prominent ad campaigns such as Abercrombie and Fitch. Other influential campaigns include Ralph Lauren, Pirelli, Revlon and Gianni Versace. His work is also widely associated with his extensive contributions to Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Elle, Life, Interview and Rolling Stone magazines. (Weber directed the music video above for The Pet Shop Boys' "I Get Along" in 2002.)
