Will McBride (photographer)
McBride grew up in Chicago, attended the University of Vermont, then the Art Institute of Chicago, and finally graduated from Syracuse University in 1953. He served in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955.
He has lived in Germany since 1955. His work has been published in the youth magazine Twen, among other European magazines. Twen provoked a scandal when they published McBride's portraits of his pregnant wife Barbara in 1960.
The bulk of his photography work is not often seen in the USA. McBride's work includes nudity and he has experienced censorship and censure around his photography for his 1975 book Show Me! (German title Zeig Mal!).
In 2004 McBride received the Dr. Erich Salomon Prize which is bestowed by the German Photographic Association (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie).
