Weber mainly is known as a photographer, but he did dabble in film with music videos and a quartet of documentaries he made on his own. Bruce Weber: The Film Collection collects the fashion photographer's feature documentary work on four discs, which provide a nice career retrospective of his notable titles.
• First up comes Broken Noses, released in 1987. Weber fixes his camera on Andy Minsker, once a Golden Gloves champion, now a coach for a teenage boxing team in Portland, Oregon. It's the perfect subject for a fashion photographer who idolizes the dichotomy of being tough and soft all at once. Andy's story is about heartbreak, abuse, not making the Olympic team, and then finally inspiring young boys to learn the sport he loves. The feature alternates between black-and-white and color, and features Weber's trademark shots of men in boxing shorts looking tough and playful for his camera.
• Next is the incredible visual essay on Chet Baker called Let's Get Lost from 1988.Read more ›
