Hand-lettered stories begin and end this thick album, and other writings, typeset, occupy a few other pages, but Weber's captivating photos overwhelm them. Suggesting at times news photography in the brutal manner of Weegee (see Weegee's World, reviewed on p.745) and at times self-conscious studio photography, Weber's usually black-and-white work combines a rough, warts-and-all effect and the firm smoothness of his preferred subjects, lean young men. Weber subscribes to the old saw "In youth is beauty" and makes us appreciate it even when the youths at hand are unshaven and unkempt (that "Branded Youth") or sweaty and grimacing, as in a kinetic suite of images from a wrestling training camp. This munificent collection also features many grungy (and a few glamorous) movie-and pop-star portraits; a color essay on Weber's old rancher-neighbor in Montana; montages of images culled directly from televised criminal trials; travelogues of Vietnam, South Africa, and Mississippi; portraits from a Boy Scout jamboree; and some amusing male nudes and seminudes. Ray Olson
