Detroit – Bruce Weber Ends this Sunday, September 7
In June of 2006, preeminent photographer Bruce Weber traveled to Detroit for the first time while on assignment for W, a monthly fashion magazine. While many photographers at that time were recording the vulnerability of Detroit, Weber was completely taken with the vitality of the city and its citizens. He returned to the Motor City again last year, to partner with the Detroit-based company Shinola. This exhibition is a result of those two assignments, presented together with portraits of prominent friends and colleagues who have strong ties to the city. Presented by the Detroit Institute of Arts with the generous support of Condé Nast. Special Exhibition Central Galleries, 2nd level.
