Martin Schoeller + PDN Photo of the Day

Images from Martin’s forthcoming monograph, “Portraits,” were featured on PDN’s Photo of The Day blog yesterday.  Click over to their site to learn more about Martin’s influences and see the photos from his new book.

In an interview with Smithsonian.com from 2009, Schoeller was asked to identify his influences. He referenced German duo Bernhard and Hilla Becher, whose images of industrial structures were graphic and repetitive. Schoeller continued, “(Bernd and Hilla Becher) have always treated photography as accumulating as a collection of the same, allowing people to compare structures, buildings with each other. And very different places. And that always fascinated me, the idea of taking portraits, in my case, that allow comparison, treating different people from different walks of life and backgrounds all the same.” – See more at: http://potd.pdnonline.com/2014/10/28965#gallery-2

Martin Schoeller + New York Times Magzine + Felix Schoeller

Martin was asked by the New York Times Magazine to shoot his son, Felix, in his bedroom. From Martin “Felix always jumps off that windowsill onto beabags.  I’ve tried to make a close-up portrait of him, but he won’t stop making faces. Moving his nose and ears. Pulling on his ears. Putting out his tongue. I spent many lollipops trying to persuade him.”
