About the Author

Martin Schoeller, started his career as an assistant for Annie Leibovitz. Schoeller's work has appeared in Rolling Stone, GQ, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, and W, among others. Schoeller's first monograph "Close Up" was a major critical success. His portraits are exhibited and collected internationally, including the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, and many private collections.

More About the Author

Born in Munich, Germany, in 1968, Martin Schoeller has become one of today's most prolific and well-known photographers. Based in New York City, Schoeller's many editorial, commercial and personal projects have yielded masterful images, widely recognized for their infamous subjects and iconic power.

Schoeller became a staff photographer for The New Yorker in 1999, joining the famed Richard Avedon. His work has also appeared in many additional magazines, including Vogue, TIME, Rolling Stone, National Geographic, GQ, and Vanity Fair, and has received awards from the American Society of Magazine Editors, Communication Arts, and the Society of Publication Designers, among other honors.

Schoeller's five books showcase a great range of the photographer's work, from a study of female bodybuilders to a compilation of Schoeller's signature "Close Up" portraits of celebrities, politicians, and unknowns. His most recent title, Portraits, is an unprecedented gathering of editorial images where the illustrious photographer's full range of expression is on display. With an impressive amount of variety and scale, Schoeller shares his signature compositional imagination alongside the wry wit that animates his work. Whether portraits of political leaders, Hollywood stars, business entrepreneurs, or contemporary music royalty, these images are as daring as they are exacting, playful and precise.

Format: Hardcover
It takes hard work to be beautiful. And the female body is already a work of art. Then to sculpt it and involve even more curves, takes the item at hand to a whole new level. I'm a 41 year old man that works out, and I think muscles look great on a woman. I wish I had more contact with female bodybuilders, I think my life would be a lot more balanced. That's all I have to say, and for what it's worth, ladies keep on pumping!
