Format: Paperback
I remember the first time I ever saw a Bruce Weber photograph. It was in the early 1980's. Andy Warhol's "Interview" magazine devoted an entire edition to Mr. Weber's art. As I recall, the shots were of Olympic athletes and they blew me away. Shortly thereafter I purchased Mr. Weber's first volume of photographs, called simply BRUCE WEBER, now a collector's item and worth big bucks-- not that I would ever part with it. Mr. Weber signed it for me at an exhibit of his photographs at Fay Gold Gallery in Atlanta. I own most of his beautiful books published since then. His latest , ALL-AMERICAN VOLUME TWELVE-A BOOK OF LESSONS is quintessential Weber. He includes his own photographs-- some of which would qualify as candids-- in both color and black and white, along with those of other photographers, and writes some of the accompanying articles as well.

There is much to like about this book, from the glorious photographs but, more importantly, the people and places Mr. Weber has selected to include in his book. My four favorites are Danny Trejo, Kaffe Fassett, Studs Terkel and Barney Rosset, all so different but each man in his own way the epitome of what it means to be an All-American. Mr. Trejo spent many years in prison, was released when he was 38 years old, straightened his life out, made movies playing the bad guy but lectures to "kids in danger." As he says so eloquently: "The greatest gift I've gotten from being in movies is that when I meet kids in danger, they listen to me." (I particularly like-- among many-- the street scene in color with Mr. Trejo's photo on a billboard and Frieda Kahlo's portrait on the opposite side of the street as well as the two color portraits of him that are on the pages just before the street scene.

Format: Paperback
This is a book about visionaries at the very edge of American cultural experience. It features photographers, artists, actors, publishers and other who had been working on their version of American experience. It is a book about the creative types and its meant for everyone who appreciates creativity in all of its manifestations. It combines Bruce Weber's photographs and interviews with photographs from the previous eras.

The book straddles the line of art photography and photojournalism. For me at least, it falls more on the journalistic side - it provides numerous interviews and background stories, and they carry the book forward. Many are very interesting (I really appreciated learning more about Danny Trejo and his remarkable life story), but I really wish that the images and pictures had been left to tell their own story and speak for the artists.

The book is beautifully designed and it comes with its own hard case. It makes a good addition to any collection of visually enchanting works.

Format: Paperback
frankly, 'm a HUGE FAN of mr weber's work since me mates commissioned portraits from his chelsea art crowd day and bought all his books since, even those really hard to get ones from little bear press. and mr weber was never known to be very HONEST with his coffee table book contents anyway, except for the now classics bear pond and chop suey club,
but to me this book is just PURE UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT!

A/. SHOOT-wise, gone was the now famous vogue homme international 'postboard' art work instead all we got was large, boring, poorly done snaps. the 've been seen one too many bo derek on horse nudes were may be titilating to some, the soft focus david hamilton style really DATED the tone of the book. plus what's Richard Avedon's shoots suppose to do in a bruce weber coffee table photo book anyway?!

B/.and if there's an arguement the weber team is trying to do an interview collection then it's a FAILURE, too.
for the literature side, writings are only up to the superficial Warhol instant noodle pop mags 'interview' standard, SADLY.

again, UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT!!! only stock this if u're a public library curator looking for names to fluff up your shelves.......tears
