Martin Schoeller + Communication Arts

An interview with Martin Schoeller is now featured in the March 2015 issue of Communication Arts. In this article, Martin reflects on his early career, the portrait that started it all, and his approach to the craft.

“Immediately upon walking into Schoeller’s workspace, it’s evident he is in the midst of something remarkable. Every inch of the walls is pasted with images; even more are arranged on a posterboard in the corner. As I peruse the photographs, he explains that he is editing and sequencing his newest book, Portraits , which is a collection of the last fifteen years of his magazine photography. Eschewing the “big head” images that made him famous, Schoeller’s latest work is focused on his more conceptual portraits. A dizzying array of Hollywood stars, politicians, musicians and athletes, the images are unified by the boldness of Schoeller’s ideas and the strength of his compositions.”

Greg Williams + 4D Photography

Greg Williams is excited to announce that he is the sole authorized photographer to use cutting-edge 4D photographic technology, which captures a photographic moment in time at the highest quality and creates renders capable of being printed on the worlds largest 3D printers. These pieces are defined as 4D as they are viewable from all angles, as opposed to 3D photography which you see from one angle. This technology was originally pioneered and developed exclusively for Star Wars Episode 7.

Greg created 4D photographs of Temperley muse Amber Heard, which were recently unveiled for a new ‘Alice in Wonderland’ window at Temperley London’s flagship for the Spring/Summer 15 London Fashion Week.

Greg Williams + ‘Fear not Victorious’ + Hero Fisher

Greg Williams recently shot a part Moto, part Video for recording-artist, Hero Fisher. The video titled, “Fear not Victorious,” was released in her debut album “Delivery.” Shot at 2,500 frames per second this 6 minute video shows the last 4 seconds of a life.

“It took approximately 5 seconds to film and plays back at over 6 minutes. So it is the last 5 seconds of Hero’s life before she gets hit by a train. Why she’s there you decide. The thing I like is you have a narrative in 5 seconds and it makes you listen to the track. It should be boring, some may say it is, but if you concentrate most people find it hypnotic.” - Greg Williams

Floto+Warner + Anónimo

Floto+Warner have been working on a personal project called Anónimo.

“Anónimo are photographs of US and Mexican nationals staged in an anonymous protest to raise awareness of the struggles of the ‘Normalista’ student protesters that were killed in their fight for education.  Inspired by the vernacular items that the protesters use to obscure their identities, our anonymous protesters stand wrapped and protected from discovery.

The ‘Normalistas’ are students that are protesting government educational reforms to privatize education. The ‘normal schools’ are part of a network of teacher training colleges that have long offered free education to the sons of farmers and rural poor.  If the government succeeds in its reforms, many of these students will be barred from attending due to poverty.

On September 26, teaching students from the Ayotzinapa ‘Normal School’ in Guerrero, Mexico were intercepted by police forces while en route to a ‘Normalista’ protest in Iguala. In the ensuing clash, six people were killed, and 43 Ayotzinapa students were taken away by the police. Witnesses and prosecutors allege the students were killed by a local gang after police handed them over.

This series is our response to the deep injustice and atrocity of this event.  We are examining notions of national identity, safety and freedom from the relative safety of the US.  This is a privilege that we don’t take lightly.”
