FREDERIC WEBER

GRAVITAS

2012

The Gravitas series, as it’s Latin title suggests, explores the elusive form of weight. For Weber, the photographs are a meditation on the transition from midlife into old age. He works with great technical and expressive dexterity, utilizing photographic collage to create intense compositions.

Weber photographs with color negative film—highlighting the importance of light, chemistry, and film emulsion to this practice. The resulting photographs are exquisitely lush in color.
