Martin Schoeller grew up in Germany and was deeply influenced by August Sander’s countless

portraits of the poor, the working class and the bourgeoise as well as by Bernd and Hilla Becher,

who spawned a school known as the Becher – Schuler. Martin worked as an assistant for Annie

Leibovitz from 1993 to 1996. He advanced as a freelance photographer producing portraits of people

he met on the street. The work gained recognition for its strong visual impact and, from 1998 on, his

work has appeared in Rolling Stone, GQ, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, Vibe and W, among others.

Schoeller has been a contributing photographer for The New Yorker since 1999.
