Martin Schoeller's 'Portraits': His Biting Take on Celebrity Culture

The new exhibit 'Portraits' celebrates the work of revered photographer Martin Schoeller, now on view at Hasted Kreutler in Chelsea, New York City. The German-born and New York-based artist is world- renowned for his irreverent and satirical images of Hollywood celebrities, artists, politicians, etc. A former assistant to Annie Liebovitz, Schoeller inherited a theatrical approach to his work and delivers unforgettable, stimulating imagery.  Schoeller cut his teeth for over a decade serving as the staff photographer for The New Yorker, additionally contributing to Esquire, GQ, Vogue and Time. The exhibit is also in tandem with his (third) latest monograph 'Portraits' released by TeNeues earlier this fall. 'Portraits' is on view through January 3, 2015 at Hasted Kreutler in New York City.
