Bruce Weber depicts Detroit and its denizens

DETROIT — While first visiting Detroit on assignment for W magazine in 2006, the renowned fashion photographer saw something more than the faded glory of a preeminent American city.

“If I was ever in trouble, I would want someone from Detroit to be there with their dukes up along with mine,” Weber said at an event touting his upcoming exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Curiously, it was Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour who helped bring the show to fruition, following a lunch meeting with Weber at which he exclaimed, “I love Detroit!”

The exhibit, “Detroit — Bruce Weber,” which comprises some 80 photographs, opens 20 June 2014 and runs through 14 September 2014.
