Wise words from Bruce Weber: weekend read

“You have to fight for your work – everybody has to. You have to be able to get knocked down and stand back up. You can’t let it stay on your shoulders.”

Veteran fashion photographer Bruce Weber isn’t just “a weird guy with a camera” – but he doesn’t work hard at being a personality, either. It’s the work that counts.

In an interview with The Talks, Weber discusses the oft sexual nature of his shoots (“I like it that people have a flirtation with life. I think that’s kind of important. I didn’t think my work was about sex so much as I thought it was about desire.”), the importance of always learning (“I just go out on each job and take pictures for myself… Even if a picture is not so good, at least I can go back to bed at night and think: “Wow, did I learn something today?””) and various other gems.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
