Ten years after his first one-man exhibition at Fahey-Klein Gallery, Bruce Weber returned to Los Angeles with a second solo exhibition titled "Whirlygig." Comprised of 140 photographs, handmade books, large-format Polarioid pieces and unique photo-objects and collages, this show took its name from the ubiquitous topsy-turvy garden sculptures Bruce discovered while traveling in Prince Edward Island that summer. The exhibition was characteristically eclectic, but drew extensively from Bruce's current work at that time.The selection presented here draws from two of his most significant bodies of work from that year –portraits and landscapes taken on Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, and photographs of the farm at AuSable in the Adirondacks, the former home of Rockwell Kent.
