About the Artist
Photographer Donald Weber originally worked as an architect in Rotterdam with urban theorist Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture. He freelanced for the international press in Africa and Eastern Europe before devoting his artistic career to an epic study of how Power deploys an all-encompassing theater, implicating everyone in its secret collaboration with both masters and victims.
His projects include The Underclass and Its Bosses: Crime & Punishment in Ukraine, which won the Lange-Taylor Documentary Prize; Bastard Eden, Our Chernobyl, which won the photolucida Book Award; The Drunk en Bride, Russia Unveiled, which won a Guggenheim Fellowship; The Drowned City, which won a Canada Council Fellowship; and his forthcoming Interrogations, about post-Soviet authority in Ukraine and Russia.
