It wasn’t easy choosing a Bruce Weber book for the blog, as he has produced so many great ones. Bruce Weber has kept his signature photographic style throughout the decades, and one can only love his fine, lighthearted images. He has published many books since his first self-titled monograph in 1983, and has remained one of the most prolific photographers since. The Andy Book is the companion publication to his first film Broken Noses, containing mostly full-page images of professional lightweight boxer Andy Minsker. The book is filled with staged black and white portraits of Andy, which, mixed with more snapshot-like images, unveil a world of youth and carefreeness. Bruce Weber’s use of colour is gentle and tender. His camera ignores the more violent aspects of professional boxing, showing a more optimistic, sunnier side, with just occasional hints at the roughness beneath.
