In 1983, before being too well-known, Weber first met agnès b. at her Prince Street store who lent him clothes for a fashion photo shoot. Following this photo shoot in Montauk, Weber sent all of the photos to agnès b., with a word of thanks… and the beginning of a special friendship was born. The 70 black and white photos in the exhibition are the results from that photo shoot.

agnès b. has had a continued presence in SoHo since opening her first boutique there in 1980. She was drawn to the  area that was, at the time, full of warehouses and artists’ studios housed in cast-iron buildings. She admired the beauty of the area and the feeling of downtown New York.
