“Mazda, Jinba Ittai”
Christian Weber is an internationally exhibited filmmaker and photographer who is consistently recognized for challenging a conventional interpretation of beauty. His short films have been screened internationally with The Creators Project in Tokyo, The New York Fashion Film Festival in New York and Seoul, and a special screening of the short film “Man on Fire” at the Musee d’art Moderne in Luxembourg. Weber's work was most notably the subject of a monographic exhibition at the Southeastern Museum of Photography.
Weber has also published several monographs. The first, “Blackline,” in 2009 featured haunting landscapes left in the wake of the Corral, Latigo, and Las Flores Canyon fires of October 2007. This was followed in 2011 and 2012 respectively by Weber’s “Selected Works” Volumes 1 and 2, monographic surveys of his diverse and recent output encompassing portraits, abstractions, landscapes and more. In 2014 he published “Explosions.” This books features work with great detail of various pyrotechnic happenings, visually reminiscent of color field paintings in the vein of Jackson Pollock and Marc Rothko. “Mazda, Jinba Ittai” is a sequel to Weber’s earlier campaign for Mazda, “Drive Together” and was created in Barcelona earlier this year.
