The first survey of Bruce Weber's work, reproducing many of his finest early photographs. It focusses on Weber's interest in the male and masculinity. The book is divided into eight portfolios - Brothers, Matt Dillon, Notebook, Lifeguards, Clammers, Hall Of Fame, Jeff, On Leave In Waikiki. The plates are sumptuously printed and display the rich tonality of Weber's work. Designed by John Cheim.
