Os Retratos de Martin Schoeller

Martin Schoeller é um fotógrafo alemão famoso pelas suas séries premiadas de retratos em close up. Essas fotos são especiais devido a forma com a qual rostos familiares se tornam diferentes quando nossas noções de valor, celebridade e honestidade passam a ser questionadas.

Crescer na Alemanha influenciou o trabalho de Martin Schoeller de várias formas e uma delas foi a fotografia de August Sander e seus retratos de trabalhadores. Além disso, o trabalho de Bernd e Hilla Becher marcaram muito seus anos de aprendizado.

As fotos que Martin Schoeller tirou de alguns famosos são daquelas que te colocam tão perto dos seus ídolos que parece que você pode ler os olhos deles. Eu acho fenomenal.

  1. anyone can shine a light in a celebrity’s eyes and make a good photo. next, please.

  2. I think the point was to highlight the imperfections of celebrities, but still have them look beautiful to show that reality is more beautiful than what we’re exposed to. And in reality we all have imperfections.

  3. Actually if you really had an eye for art there’s more than that. But, sadly you’re one of the simple minded idiots that doesn’t know what art actually is.

  4. fantastic. not everyone can do this- i’m impressed with how ‘real’ they all look.

  5. Lawrence Kinsman

    I don’t think you quite understand. These pictures show these people how they really are. Do you see makeup? Do you see any particular pose? These people are being shown as human beings, mortal. Any other picture you see of them would be plastered in a tabloid magazine, or a makeup laden screenshot for a movie. I really like these photos, and fuck yeah Bill Murray

  6. I think the photos are awesome, they give a more realistic view of them. Did you not look a the first few? You can see all there wrinkles, makeup and acne that they have!

  7. Anne, its not about just taking a photo its about getting rid the of the fake glamor of hollywood that we see all the time. When you can get 20 a-list celebrities together for a photoshoot I’d love to see what you can create.

  8. Anne… you are a fucking moron… first off, there’s a little more to lighting a portrait like that then just “shining a light in celebrities’ eyes….” second, someone else mentioned that these are untouched photos, highlighting imperfections. AND third can you call up Iggy Pop of Paris Hilton and say “Hey, come over for a bit so I shine some lights in your face and take a photo real quick?”

  9. it says at the bottom,

    “As fotos que Martin Schoeller tirou de alguns famosos são daquelas que te colocam tão perto dos seus ídolos que parece que você pode ler os olhos deles. Eu acho fenomenal.”

    it means,

    “The photographs Martin Schoeller took of some celebrities are the kind that make you feel so close to your idols that it feels like you can read what’s in their eyes. I think it’s incredible.”

  10. Would absolutely LOVE to see a picture of Shia Lebouf like this. I would probably have a heart attack. Justin Timberlake is lookin mightyyyy fine!

  11. ….and you’re one of the arrogant assholes who parades above people who you believe are lesser than you for not understanding “art”. Who are you to dictate what art is or isn’t?

  12. I see a cake faced slut second pic….check your source Lawrence Kinsman, before you try to sound all smart

  13. Photos meant to make you feel CLOSE to these people. Every one of them is wearing makeup, particularly the women.
    Makeup doesn’t strictly mean lots of eyeshadow and lipstick. In Angelina Jolie’s picture it’s obvious she has a significant amount of foundation and powder going on, along with lip gloss and mascara.

    People like to think that because they’re seeing someone out of their more typical public element that they’re automatically stripped down. They forget that photo shoots like this have as much fuss and bother as Vanity Fair shoots. But because we can’t see what the subject is wearing and they’re wearing less makeup than usual we see it as raw. It plants as much of an image in our minds and evokes as much emotion as the grand, large scale photos, just in a different way.

  14. While these photographs are certainly revealing in their own right, sadly, it is the anger and derogatory banter below them that is most revealing, a microcosmic representation of our world these days; of our inhumanity toward one another. For my son’s sake, I need to believe we’re better than this.

  15. Dumbass. These are close-up, plain photos with harsh lighting. The idea isn’t to take a good photo, its to show the imperfections of the people in them. These are all celebrities, people that others look up to and consider beautiful. These photos help strip them of that and show us that they’re only human.

  16. “Dumbass.” “Dumb fuck.” “Smart ass.” “Fucking moron.” None of you would ever say this to the other in person. Way to hide behind the protection of the Internet.

  17. Here’s a suggestion Ed, why don’t you restrict yourself to looking at images you do understand, then, when you feel the urge to comment, you and a number of your commenting cohorts will have a fair chance at making some semblance of sense. You’re over your head here.

  18. First of all, Women wear make up. Jolie Has great skin, she’s paid money for it. The fact that you discredit the photographer is disgusting, anyone can see the ugly in something, people that recoginze Art see beauty. One of the Most wanted, and most expensive pieces of Art in our world looks like it could have been done by a kinder-gardener. and for God sakes it’s narrow minded people like you people above that make me disappointed. The women you can see Flaws in their photos, you can see theirs pore, their scars and their wrinkles.

    Miklos, do you know that women you call a caked faced slut, have you been in her situation? how can you even have a right to judge her just because she doesn’t portray the image you think Women should have. You probably also feel that Britney Spears allowing untouched photos appear beside the touched up ones makes her a bad person, when it allows young girls to see what the media is trying to force them to be.

    To me these photos make them appear more like someone that i could see on the street and the makeup even the women are wearing is minimal and isn’t done so that it reflects light to make them appear flawless. They are not air brushed and it’s all done with lighting.

    Furthermore i Agree with Dan. To those who commented their opinions as to what they felt the Artist was trying to do, good for having an opinion. to those who just want to destroy others, What problems do you have with your self that you can’t deal with. Its disappointing to see opinions treated so poorly and the insulting of people who are harassed by your own sick obsession to know everything about their lives. I am terrified for my future children

  19. Agreed. That’s unfortunate. Shouldn’t the comments be about the subject matter, not picking one another apart? Great site, awesome shots warts and all!

  20. The problem with sites that allow comments is dumb dialogue like this…damn!
    It is what it is…

  21. AS a processional photographer I find that these are stunning mug shots – the pose one uses for passport photos. Looking at the catch lights in the eyes the photographer use two soft boxes giving a diffused soft light. Because they are equidistant the lighting is flat. If the subject had turned its head to the side one would have a three quarter shot of the head and the jaw line and nose profile would have become visible. He used a good lens as evident in the details of the faces. They are stunning although given the opportunity I would have photographed them as described above.

  22. Here’s the funny thing. I have no idea what the purpose of posting the celebrity pics was. Nor do I care but if the whole idea was to get people talking — it worked. You are all debating it, not only that you are starting fights and insulting one another behind someone’s art. That’s just plain genius on the artist’s part.

  23. We all agree that these are beautiful photos. Keep the other comments to yourselves,… we all can think anyway!

  24. I recognise about half. It would be interesting to have them all named and see how that affects my perception. Can someone name them all or is that a spoiler?

  25. I agree Dan, everyone seems to have lost focus on the photography and this back and forth insulting everyone is childish and moronic.

  26. LA Kresfelder

    When people say that your eyes are the window to your soul I know exactly what it means after looking at the above shots. I think they were not all taken at the same time. Its amazing to see the expressions on their faces, some seem to be absolutely unaffected showing no emotion while others seem unable to keep in the turmoil going on in their minds. Anyway, that’s what I notice from the shots 🙂

  27. Even tho dennis hopper is not with us any more he really shines in that photo.

  28. To me, it seems that the reason everyone has strong opinions is because these photos are of celebrities. People that we focus on intently. They mean something to us. And since we do not have the ability to get so close to them, shooting them like this and putting them in our face brings up lots of emotions. Although some of the comments are rude and childish, they are seeking to divert attention away from the images of their idols.

  29. Here’s my list of who I recognize. It’s incomplete so fill in the blanks as you see fit (feel free to correct and criticize any errors):

    1. Angelina Jolie
    2. Paris Hilton
    3. (a fashion designer, can’t think of his name)
    4. Zinadine Zidane (I think)
    5. (not sure)
    6. Jack Nicholson
    7. George Clooney
    8. (not sure)
    9. Iggy Pop
    10. Mark Zuckerberg (creator of Facebook, typically very media shy)
    11. Clint Eastwood
    12. Dennis Hopper
    13. Christopher Walken (great actor but looks like an alien here!)
    14. Zach Galifianakis (I think)
    15. Bill Murray
    16. (No idea)
    17. Justin Timberlake
    18. John McEnroe (I think)
    19. (no idea)
    20. (no idea)

  30. i belive it is the D.O.F. that draws the attention and strong contrast in the eyes and mouth that makes you feel close and that is uncomin in a normal photo.

  31. How could you not know Mickey Rourke…
    COME ON.
    and 19 is Kelly Slater…
    Sheesh.

  32. 8- Helen Mirren
    16- Mickey Rourke
    19- Kelly Slater (surfer)
    no idea about 19 but u got the others

  33. These photos should not be look at as “real”. They are the product of lighting, narrow depth of field and some post processing. Very well done though.

  34. It’s interesting to see these people in this state. Having a camera this close to your face presents you to be very volnerable. Look at the older people, their skin is even aging. Something not normally seen thanks to Hollywood.

  35. Thos Weatherby

    Because I don’t waste my time reading the tabloids and watching TMZ. Sheesh

  36. The catch light in the eyes. Its a double softbox.one on each side.
    Nice effect.

  37. Justing Timberlake’s face is incredibly symmetrical in this shot. It made me stop scrolling to see if it was one of those mirror shots.

    Almost everyone looks like they’re wearing lipstick. Even the guys.

  38. When I looked at each picture, I knew there names and who they were. But for a split second they just seemed like normal people. Just people that were taken off of the street and put in front of a lens. And I think that is what everybody should think. Nobody is greater and lesser than the person next to them. Everybody is the same, we are all just living day to day. And someday we will die. Just like everybody else.

  39. Yeah, i agree with you Haley. The U.S. is way too consumed with idolizing celebrities. Because we see them on a T.V. or movie screen? The only thing that separates us from them is their job, that’s it. We are the same in nearly every other way. We all die. Well said Haley. ( ;

  40. I saw this exhibition in Canberra. Amazing, the photos are huge and the detail… Just, wow. They are all so ugly in their own ways, but so beautiful too. The exhibition had photos of normal people too, in particular a bunch of polynesian people in traditional dress which made for great contrast with the celebrities.

  41. This would make more sense if I knew what the fuck was going on.

    Are these all manipulated from Angelina or what? I notice that every single image uses the same eyes, but I don’t know the context of it.

  42. 1. Angelina Jolie
    2. Paris Hilton
    3. Valentino
    4. Zinadine Zidane
    5. Heath Ledger
    6. Jack Nicholson
    7. George Clooney
    8. Hellen Mirren
    9. Iggy Pop
    10. Marc Zuckerburg
    11. Clint Eastwood
    12. Dennis Hopper
    13. Chistopher Walkin
    14. Zach Galifianakis
    15. Bill Murray
    16. Mickey Rourke
    17. Justin Timberlake
    18. John McEnroe
    19. Kelly Slater
    20. idk

  43. I think only 2 have brown eyes? I have blue eyes. I might take up acting. I already surf but who can beat Kelly?
