Years and years ago, before I realised, or more accurately, admitted my sexuality I looked in a bookshop in my home town of Wollongong and picked up Bruce Weber’s “Bear Pond”. At the time I didn’t know quite why I loved it so much, but despite the lusty urges towards the beautiful men in the book, the photography is absolutely stunning. Bruce is probably one of the foremost image makers of our time and his legacy will be here for generations to come.

Sadly Bear Pond is not in my collection of art books, but it will be one day. Maybe one day I’ll get to meet the man too. In great news, the movies that Bruce has made, that initially were never going to be released on DVD, are apparently now destined for my shelves in the form of DVD’s. Why Bruce has decided to release them I do not know, but I’m eternally grateful.
