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.

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

    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?

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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…

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

    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.
