‘These two are great friends – they love being together, they are comfortable around each other and while (George) Clooney
is smart and focused, (Brad) Pitt is a big kid.’

‘Robert De Niro is the ultimate New Yorker, his name and his acting roles are synonymous with the city,
so I wanted to portray him doing a very ordinary New York thing, riding the subway.’

‘He’d just had surgery and couldn’t lift his arm…. We ended up asking a maid at the hotel to swing from
the chandelier instead, which I think in the end was even funnier.’

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
