Martin Schoeller is one of the best-known portrait photographers of the younger generation.
After studying photography in Berlin, Martin Schoeller went to New York in order to attend to portrait photography and documentation. Having little knowledge of the language and even less money, he asked Annie Leibovitz and Irving Penn, both photographers he adored, for an assistant job.
Today Martin Schoeller’s work has reached international recognition. He photographs for magazines such as »Rolling Stone«, »GQ«, »Esquire«, »Vogue«, »Interview « and is one of the four photographers, who are employed by the magazine »The New Yorker« .
