Martin Schoeller + TIME Lightbox + The Photo That Made Me

Martin recently wrote a piece for the TIME Lightbox’s “The Photo That Made Me” series about an image he sees as boosting his career. In the article Martin talks about the below image, a portrait of Vanessa Redgrave he shot in 1999, an image he captured in only 10 minutes. Not only did this portrait catch the eye of his future clients, but also helped him develop a style he still shoots today.

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Eclectix

Eclectix Online recently interviewed Julia for an Artist Feature. The interview covers Julia’s childhood memories, inspirations, as well as technical aspects of  creating the “surreal” world within her work.

“I have shot a whole series of projects based on the female psyche; from teenage angst to mother-daughter relationships and a grown woman’s downward spiral when confronted with unrequited love. Without embarrassment I admit to the auto-biographical nature of much of the content of these images. Having exorcised the past I have now fortunately moved on.”

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Beards Project

Noting the prevalence of facial hair in fashion today and how the manicured, yet rugged man has become far more common, Julia set out to contrast these ideas.  She photographed these bearded men in overgrown green houses, depicting nature not only reclaiming space but also taking back the man, creeping into the subject’s beards.  Like Roald Dahl’s Mr Twit with countless food particles caught in his beard, these male subjects reflect the societal perception of the aloof man, however, are complicated by feminine floral arrangements adorning their faces.  These flowers, carefully intertwined with their masculinity, show not only the complexity of the male role within fashion but within modern society as a hole.  In essence, Julia’s images question the symbols and messaging associated with masculinity, the modern man is pulled in two directions. In one, showing a masculine side, but in another, displaying their sensitive being, all while these two notions begin to come full circle, the feminine becoming the essence of the rugged and natural man.  These images offer a provocative look at the nature of beauty and strength.
