Chop Suey - MoritzFeedDog2024

A cult classic from the iconic photographer Bruce Weber. A love letter to that special (and fleeting) bond that arises between the person being photographed and the person behind the camera.

For over four years, Bruce Weber dedicated himself to photographing Peter Johnson, a young man from Wisconsin who possessed as much naturalness as he did innocence. A visual journey that leaves childhood behind, wanders through adolescence, and arrives at adulthood, with a melancholy akin to when we leaf through old family albums and the passage of time becomes palpable. Weber pays homage to his heroes—Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Robert Mitchum, Frances Faye—and draws an involuntary manifesto of his favorite themes: beauty, fetish, youth, and fun.
