Before taking up photography, Donald Weber trained as an architect and worked with Rem Koolhaas in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Weber is the author of three photography books. Interrogations, which looks at post-Soviet authority in Ukraine and Russia, has gone on to much acclaim; it was selected to be included in Martin Parr’s and Gerry Badger’s seminal The Photobook: A History, Volume III.
Among his numerous awards and fellowships are a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Lange-Taylor Prize, the Duke and Duchess of York Prize, and two World Press Photo Awards. His work was also shortlisted for the prestigious Scotiabank Photography Prize.
Weber’s diverse photography projects have been exhibited as installations, exhibitions, and screenings at festivals and galleries worldwide.
Currently Don is working on his next project, War Sand, about historic sacrifice and the meaning of war in our modern world. He is represented by Circuit Gallery in Toronto.
