American photographer Bruce Weber is best known for his (mostly) black and white images of a beautiful young Americana. His images range from portrayals of toned muscular bodies (mainly male) almost as studied sculptures to fun group shots. It is a contrast that is so wide ranging that it has made him a favourite amongst advertisers, most notably Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Pirelli, Abercrombie & Fitch, Revlon, and Gianni Versace. He was catapulted into the public spotlight in the late 1980s and early 1990s with his advertising images for Calvin Klein – which were straightforward black and white shots, featuring an unclothed heterosexual couple on a swing facing each other, two clothed men in bed, and model Marcus Schenkenberg barely holding jeans in front of himself in a shower. Weber is always pushing the boundaries in his portrayals of relationships, both hetero- and homo-sexual.
