Uli Weber in Vogue and at The Saatchi Gallery
Uli Weber captures the women of Downton Abbey for Vogue Magazine. The hit PBS show follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants at the fictional Downton Abbey estate. Weber shot Jessica Findlay-Brown, Laura Carmichael, and Michelle Dockery, who portray the Crawley daughters, in a crumbling Georgian mansion in London's West End. The Vogue article highlights the actresses' natural beauties and the makeup that captures their Edwardian characters. Weber calls them "a wonderful bunch of ladies" and adds, "It was a very enjoyable shoot."
Weber's photographs will also appear in The Sunday Times Magazine exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery in London. The show celebrates the world-famous photographers who have contributed to the magazine since its launch fifty years ago. Weber has three photographs in the show, one of Kylie Minogue, one of Stephen Fry, and one of Boy George. His images will be featured alongside those of David Bailey, Eve Arnold, Sam Taylor-Wood, Snowdon, and Richard Avedon. Weber says he is "very honored to have contributed some images to such a memorable and important magazine."
