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.
