DONALD WEBER

BASED IN CALIFORNIA

BIOGRAPHY

Prior to photography, Donald Weber originally trained as an architect and worked with urban theorist Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He has since devoted himself to the study of how Power deploys an all-encompassing theater for its subjects; what he records is its secret collaboration with both masters and victims.

Weber is the author of two books. His first, Bastard Eden, Our Chernobyl, won the photolucida Book Prize and asked a simple question: what is daily life actually like, in a post-atomic world? His latest book, Interrogations, about post-Soviet authority in Ukraine and Russia, was considered by many critics one of the year’s best photo books.

He is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Lange-Taylor Prize, the Duke and Duchess of York Prize, two World Press Photo Awards, PDN’s 30 and was named an Emerging Photo Pioneer by American Photo.

His diverse photography projects have been exhibited as installations, exhibitions and screenings at festivals and galleries worldwide including the United Nations, Museum of the Army at Les Invalides in Paris, the Portland Museum of Art and the Royal Ontario Museum. He is a dedicated teacher and is noted for his ongoing series of lectures and workshops and a frequent trainer with World Press Photo.

Currently Don is working on his next project, The Impossible City, which explores the City inundated by its technological future.
