A little fluff for the world..Martin Schoeller - "Close Up"



This german photog believes in the "less is more" theory. His portraits of famous and infamous people are stark and no frills. The women have only a minimal amount of makeup on for the most part. He only does head shots and with a light colored,plain background. Cecil B. DeMille would be proud. He has Bill Clinton, Jack Nicholson, Brad's Angelina, Marilyn Manson even Lance Armstrong is in there. I like looking at them, its warts and all.. and they look ...human,for lack of a better word. Clinton looks...smug..yes,thats it..he looks smug or maybe its a look like the jokes on us, but whatever the look, it intrigue's me. The link to Schoeller's website is here.

Woah, check out the difference between both of his eyes. Kinda freaky. Dunno why.

Wow! Do you mind if I put that link on my blog? I like the one of Jim Carey. He has this look like he's afraid you're not going to laugh anymore. It's kinda sad.

I find the Clinton photo scary....makes him look like AHnold....

The difference in the look of the eye might be due to his recent bypass....
