American photographer Bruce Weber will be honored for his career with the Isabella Blow For Creators Award at the first edition of the new Fashion Awards in London, in December 2016. The event, formerly known as the British Fashion Awards, has honored great names of the industry, such asw the British photographer Nick Knight and the stylist Edward Enninful.
Weber, considered by many to be the best men's fashion photographer alive, began his work on the pages of GQ Magazine, in the 1970s, and has since acted on pretty much every major fashion fronts: from Ralph Lauren and Versace campaign to Pirelli's annual calendar, in 2003, one of the biggest milestones in the photographer's career.
"Bruce is one of the creative photographers and talents who most helped shape the fashion industry we know today and I have a lot of admiration for him," said Nathalie Massenet, president of the British Fashion Council and founder of Net-a-Porter.
His love affair with Brazil is not new. With more than 37 published books, in 1986 Weber dedicated a title to Rio de Janeiro, being one of the first books in the period to use the city as ambiance for fashion photography. He recently collaborated with Made in Brazil magazine in a cover story with Marlon Teixeira.
To pay our tribute, we have separated some of special images that mark Bruce Weber's look at Brazil.
