Photographer Bruce Weber Teams Up With Detroit Institute of Arts for New Exhibit

ondé Nast, which publishes magazines such as Vanity Fair, GQ and Vogue, is teaming up with photographer Bruce Weber and the Detroit Institute of Arts to present the exhibit Detroit – Bruce Weber showing June 20-Sept. 7, 2014.

The photos, which have been compiled since 2006, feature notable people, places and sights of Detroit, along with Detroit residents. The exhibit also showcases Weber's photos of Aretha Franklin, Grace Lee Boggs and the Detroit chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen.

"Detroit is one of the few places in the world now where there is a big welcome sign in the smiles and hearts of its people," Weber says in a press release. "Their continued courage and resilience is why I first ended up there with my camera. Condé Nast has joined me to help celebrate Detroit with this exhibition."

Weber has contributed as a fashion photographer to magazines like Vogue since 1978. He has held more that 60 exhibitions around the world. Also a filmmaker, Weber has directed seven films, both short and feature length.

"Bruce Weber is one of the preeminent American photographers of our time," Vogue editor and Condé Nast's artistic director Anna Wintour says in a press release. "What better photographer than Bruce to be a champion of this great American city."
