Veteran American photographer Bruce Weber, famed for his iconic black and white photographs, is to receive the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at the Fashion Awards on December 5th at The Royal Albert Hall.

Weber has shaped the way we see fashion photography, not only capturing the aesthetic qualities of his image but also hinting at the inner life of the subject, building on the provocation of some of his early fashion photography. He first came to fame shooting images for GQ in the 1970s, going on to work for Pirelli, Ralph Lauren and Versace. His pictures have appeared in Elle, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and Vogue – featuring Lily Rose Depp on December’s cover.

Nothing if not prolific, Weber has published 37 books, held over 60 exhibitions and made three documentaries. He even launched his own fashion label in 2003 entitled ‘Weberbilt’.

The Isabella Blow Award is always given to a stylist, makeup artist, photographer, art director or producer. This year, the Fashion Council has opened up many categories of their annual awards to international figures. Weber follows in the footsteps of last year’s winner, Nick Knight.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
