Sander's Children at Danziger Projects, NYC

I am thrilled to be a part of the new exhibit at Danziger Projects titled Sander's Children: Figurative Photography in the Tradition of August Sander.

It's a great show with images by Avedon, Penn, Milton Rogovin, Seydou Keita, Rineke Dijkstra, Lola Veleko and me, just to name a few.

Also I have been meaning to post a link to James Danziger's blog The Year in Pictures. James' blog is one of the few I read on a daily basis, and I have really learned a lot about the art of photography by reading it.

Congratulations! Love your work, and it's so incredible it'll be in the same show as Avedon, Penn & others.

i like the juxtaposition between her very glamorous outfit and her rather staid flat shoes.

Lucky you, congrats! Beautiful photographs!

I love these two images placed together and how the line of the wall meeting the sidewalk in the picture on the right flow into the same lines in the picture of the left and how these two people appear to be standing next to each other. Very smart!

Sounds like a facinating show. Many congratulations on being chosen! Your work so often combines human interest, exquisite beauty and social documentary like Sander's. i look forward to seeing the way Mr Danziger juxtaposes and displays the images. Will any of your work be for sale?


Blogger Eugénie from Paris said ... (3:09 AM) : 

I just love the sadness and the melancholy in August Sander's pictures.

Anonymous felice said ... (6:12 AM) : 

wow, this must feel so great for you to be compared with august sander. his fotography is amazing! and yours is too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:27 AM) : 

Hey Sart,
I think your photos are great, but they are certainly not in the "Tradition of August Sander" as suggested here. Sander was trying to capture the social character, what you are doing is fashion photography. I think the Danziger's poster illustrates that perfectly well. The left photo by August Sander concentrates on the man's expression, your's on the right is about fur.
There might be similarities in certain respects between your photography and Sander's, but Danziger's concept seems to be all too simplistic to catch these.

wow, that's great. I wish i could go there...but im stuck here in cold amsterdam.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:04 AM) : 

Wow! Those are big names you are together with. Congratulations. J from W Palm Beach


Anonymous paul said ... (8:25 AM) : 

Very hearty congrats on being included with such heavies.

Thanks for the link to the Danziger site also. I just might play hooky today and go to Basel. Crap.....

If personal/street fashion ( as opposed to commercial fashion) isn't a statement of social character, I don't know what is.

Keep on bringing them.


Blogger Dominica said ... (8:33 AM) : 

Wow - just great !
Another mile-stone in your career !
Congrats !
Thank you for the tip on JD's blog....everybody that takes an interest in photography is keen to learn...


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (9:12 AM) : 

Congratulations! It sounds like a great show and I'm really pleased that you're included in it.


Blogger Ms. Wis./Each Little World said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Sander is right up there with god at our house, and as a former Buffalonian, so is Milt Rogovin! Thanks for letting us know about this project.

Thank you for the link to James Danziger's blog.
I will make sure to visit his blog daily too (right after visiting yours.)


Blogger Mark T said ... (11:40 AM) : 

What a great idea for an exhibition. The Tate Modern in London tried something like that recently (the History of Street Photography or some such) and it felt a bit flat...they didn't even include you, the fools! Anyway, bravo!

Isn't this the same woman you have a picture of on October 26?


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (2:25 PM) : 

i will be there.


Blogger John Christopher said ... (4:44 PM) : 

That shot of Richard Avedon on his blog was goddamn amazing. Thank you thank thank you Scott for bringing this to my attention, and congrats.


Blogger John Christopher said ... (4:48 PM) : 

Well not of, but by I mean, because I think that's Bob Dylan.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:36 PM) : 

Congratulations Mr. Schuman-- you are deservedly in great company!

I always think your style of work; portraitures of, for the most part, anonymous, but interesting and stylish individuals captured spontaneously in their environment, takes more of a sharp eye than the refined and polished images we associate with high fashion.

I am definitely looking forward to your book...



Blogger Laurence John said ... (5:55 PM) : 

i wish they had picked a modern male neurotic of yours to more closely mirror the man on the left.

the exhibit is in NY but are these two pictures taken in Moscow? I dunno but I get the feeling they are. The style, the models, the atmosphere. cool shots!


Blogger Shaina said ... (8:49 AM) : 

Congrats! :)


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (12:45 PM) : 

Great. I remember you saying Sander was one of your favourites.

That led me to look him up in a couple of books we have laying around. And I CAN see a similarity - sometimes.

Anything that inspires curiosity is fine by me.
