Bruce Weber was born in Greensburg, Pennsylvania in 1946. Originally studying theatre and filmmaking, Weber was introduced to Lisette Model and began to study with her at the New School in the 1960s. He participated in his first group show in 1973 and had his first solo exhibition at Razor Gallery in New York City a year later. Weber began photographing ads and commercials for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, in the late 1970s. His work has appeared in numerous publications, such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, and Interview, and it is in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. Over 15 books of Weber's work have been published, including Roberto Bolle: An Athlete In Tights, Branded Youth and Other Stories, and A House is Not a Home. His work in A House is Not a Home illustrates how "home" comes from the life within, regardless of how grand the structure.
