Elizabeth Weinberg

Freelance photographer Elizabeth Weinberg got her first real job taking pictures of Ben Kweller for the inner artwork of his self-titled 2006 album. Since then she’s had her work published in Nylon, Heeb and Bust as well as host of other awesome publications. She has dipped her toe in fashion and concert photography but my personal favourites of her photographs are her portaits. Many of these are of some of my favourite bands and musicians. Over the last few years she has snapped, amongst others, Yeasayer, Santigold, Dr. Dog, Ariel Pink and of course, Ben Kweller.

One of Weinberg’s most fascinating projects is Abigail, a document of her younger sister growing up. She has been capturing her sister’s journey since she was fifteen years old. The goal of the project is to document her sibling’s growth as child alongside her own development as a photographer.

A zine entitled “Of Recklessness and Water” has just been made available for purchase through her blog. It’s only $20 and contains a whopping 46 pages. A bargain at twice the price, I’m sure you’ll agree, and it’d make a good birthday present for any fans of recklessness and/or water. Click here to buy.
