For the first issue of OC Annual Magazine, Bruce Weber dreamt up a romance that goes a little something like this: "This is the tale of a young man from St. Louis named Georgeo Frazer. He is a great basketball player who secretly wants to be a dancer. Rose Lewis is a dancer from New York City. She secretly wants to be a veterinarian. Once Georgeo met Rose, their desire was everything. Their world became a 'Lov-A-Rama."
Bruce Weber has earned acclaim for his filmmaking, including Broken Noses (1987), a documentary about boxer and Olympic hopeful Andy Minsker; Let’s Get Lost (1989), a documentary on jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary; and Chop Suey Club (2001), a feature on wrestler Peter Johnson that is equally about the filmmaker’s own career and inspirations. He has garnered the following other awards: Clio Award for Recognition in Apparel (1986); the International Documentary Association Award for both Broken Noses (1986) and Let’s Get Lost (1987); an ICP Infinitiy Award for Applied Photography (1993); the 1st Annual Alfred Eisenstadt Award for portrait photography from Life Magazine (1998); and the Getty Images Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Center of Photography (2005) and (2008) Art Director’s Club “Hall of Fame” honoree.
