Here’s a bit of inspiration for the day, a collection of portrait photographs by world renowned and award winning photographer Martin Schoeller.
The German born, New York based photographer has a distinguished style which captures the raw beauty of his subjects through portraits. He has photographed many celebrities from actors to chefs, sportsmen and politicians. His work can be seen on the Times, Vogue, The New Yorker, Rolling Stones, ESPN magazine and more.
The tone, lighting, angle and backgrounds in his photographs give depth, intensity and intrigue I find it fascinating how Schoeller captures the individual characters and personalities behind his subjects in his photography, such as the photograph of Christian Bale capturing his rage, as a reminder of his outburst on the Terminator set a few years ago.
