On the beach, in restaurants, at nightclubs, in their rooms, Weber’s subjects exude a beauty which is at the same time casual and self-possessed. Many of these photographs were shown in a major exhibition at the Robert Miller Gallery, New York, in September of 1986. Some edge wear to wrappers, and a few very small bumps to spine edge, otherwise a very nice copy. Interior clean and binding tight. Scarce!
