Fashion Designer MIMI PLANGE x Photographer EMMANUEL ANDRE and SARAH HASTED
May 15th, 2018
Three years ago, we met photographer by night, Emmanuel Andre and immediately joined forces to create a series of photographs celebrating the Mimi Plange woman.. We invited a group of amazing women to a photo studio in NYC, but did not tell them why. We presented each of them our entire collection and let them choose which outfit they wanted to wear for their photoshoot. We provided hair and makeup to compliment their look. We asked them all a few fun questions.
is thrilled to announce and present new portraits by
The new portraits, (most have never been seen, exhibited or sold before), were taken between 2005 and 2018, and are included in Martin's soon to be released monograph titled, Close ( Steidl, 2018). Close features 120 portraits of the world's most famous and influential people across the arts and entertainment industries, politics, business and sports. The new work and book are cause for celebration and a true milestone moment for the artist, spanning 14 years of his illustrious career.
Schoeller's inspiration for Close was the Water Tower series by Bernd and Hilla Becher, and his ambition to adapt their systematic approach to portraiture. Amidst Schoeller's famous subjects are also some unknown and unfamiliar ones, a means to comprehensively make his project an "informal anthropological study of the faces of our time."
Each photograph proves that Martin Schoeller has more than earned his reputation as today’s preeminent portraitist, consistently capturing iconic characters so familiar we think we know them, Colin Kaepernick, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Marina Abramovic, Bill Gates, Serena Williams, Warren Buffett, Cher, Michael Jordan, Willie Nelson, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Bono, Donald Trump, Viola Davis, Larry David, Barack Obama , to name a few.
