Intimate head shots are the signature style of brilliant lensman, Martin Schoeller. He's the man behind the famous close up shots of celebrities. I've been a huge fan of his work for years! I love how he captured the most essential part of these celebrities in its rawest form; wrinkles and all.
Schoeller doesn't just focus on photographing famous people. Taking cue from another great photographer, August Sander, Schoeller likes taking shots of "normal" people as well.
His recent work that caused much controversy is that photo of Jamie Lynne Grumet with his son latched on to her left breast for the Time May issue.
