BORN READY


You probably know Bruce Weber as the photographer of erotica. I only became familiar with his work not because of this famous status but because of his dogs and after that, because his distinctive way of surprising the moment. Always casual, always American inspired, always playful. Even if his portfolio includes portraits with celebrities both men and women, the way he redefined the male beauty ideal along his career is peerless. 
His All American series of books reveal a very personal and original version of America and the latest one, "All-American Volume Thirteen: Born Ready" celebrates individuals whose risk-taking and personal vision set them apart from the crowd. The limited edition released in only 5000 copies is available now at Colette.
