Building on the success of his previous titles, Close Up and Identical, Martin Schoeller’s Portraits is cause for celebration.
The illustrious photographer’s full range of expression is on display in this unprecedented gathering of editorial images. With an impressive amount of variety and scale, Schoeller shares his signature compositional imagination alongside the wry wit that animates his work. Whether portraits of political leaders, Hollywood stars, business entrepreneurs, or contemporary music royalty, these images are as daring as they are exacting, playful, and precise. Regardless of the subject and setting, Schoeller’s photographs seemingly come to life. While Portraits will surely thrill devoted fans, it will also attract new admirers with images they’ve noted in top magazines. Every frame in this expansive volume is touched with Schoeller’s distinctive flare for creating meticulously realized worlds-and confirm that he’s a talent that consistently resets the limits of photographic portraiture.
