O Rio De Janiero

First Edition by Bruce Weber. “O Rio de Janeiro” published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, in 1986. Containing 144 spectacular color and duotone full-page gravures (four folding), the book is an intimate photo-essay that features images of sculpted fashionable young people and the sensual Rio de Janeiro scene. Bruce Weber has produced a formidable list of wonderful photobooks throughout the years but “O Rio de Janeiro” still remains his most popular and sought after book. Writing in ““The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century” Vince Aletti states, “O Rio is most successful as a carefully planned act of seduction…Weber has turned his trademark fiction of youthful exuberance and sexy camaraderie into a fast-paced montage intercut with landscapes, still lifes, news photos and family snapshots.”
