An early, very scarce Weber title. Men & Women. Images From Nicole was one of Weber's earliest fashion projects. He was commissioned by Japanese fashion label Nicole, headed by designer Mitsuhiro Matsuda, to photograph their Fall 1983 collection. The entire shoot was done on Gilgo Beach, New York over two days in May 1983. The models, men and women, stand upon the beach, with the waves in the background. No props, just bodies, clothes and landscape. Pure Bruce Weber. Art direction by Diamond Head's.
