The Editors of Portfolio Magazine & Weber, Bruce . BRUCE WEBER: "HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS" PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE SPEZIAL FOTOGRAFIE STERN PORTFOLIO LIBRARY OF PHOTOGRAPHY. Hamburg, Germany: Stern Gruner + Jahr AG, 2005. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 96 pages. As New.

Retrospective collection of photographs. Special Limited and Numbered Edition. Number 38 in the continuing Series by Stern. The first 50 Issues of the Stern Portfolio Library of Photography, the most avidly collected Photography Series of its kind in the world, were all published as softcover originals only. A brilliant production by Stern: Oversize-volume format. A very tall and slim book. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Bruce Weber. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Bruce Weber's second contribution to the now-legendary Series whose brilliant concept is to devote each Issue to a particular photographer. The collection consists of some of the photographer's recent work: Memorable and iconic images which celebrate the beauty and sex appeal of both the celebrity and the chiseled, nicely-built male (and a few female) models, usually photographed nude in Weber's trademark "all-American" look. Includes the omnipresent and adorable Carlson Twins in full-frontal nude shots as well as numerous photographs that have not appeared anywhere else in book form. Weber combines these images with photographs of lavishly beautiful homes (hence the "double-entendre" as well as literal meanings of the title), a juxtaposition that he did so brilliantly in "A House Is Not A Home". The Portfolio Magazine/Spezial Fotografie Series have become eminently collectible and now include contributions by Peter Beard, William Klein, James Nachtwey, Francis Giacobetti, Annie Leibovitz, Nan Goldin, Mario Testino, David LaChapelle, Herb Ritts, Ellen von Unwerth, Giorgia Fiorio, Horst, Martin Parr, and Andreas H. Bitesnich, among many others. The sexiest title in the Series thus far, this is a "must-have" title for Bruce Weber collectors. This Issue is now highly collectible. This is one of extremely few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. One of the finest living American photographers. A flawless collectible copy.
