A photo tribute to the American actor and playwright Sam Shepard, published to benefit the Film Forum in New York. Weber's portraits were taken in two sittings, first in New Mexico and second at Shepard's home in Virginia. Shepard's partner Jessica Lange appears in some of the shots. Weber clearly reveres Shepard and his photos, placing the statuesque writer firmly in the landscape, give him the status of a great American man of letters. Designed by Dimitri Levas, with an introduction by Weber.
