Schude Hardcover – September 25, 2015
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Ryan Schude's work is large scaled, detailed, and highly produced with an incredible amount of detail. He has developed a style that not only pushes the boundaries of the still photograph, but also tells a story at the same time. Schude's scenes capitalize on a feeling of energy caught at its climax - the ultimate fictitious decisive moment - giving them a sense of frenetic energy and complexity that makes the viewer want to explore every nook and cranny in the scene. (Juxtapoz, July 2015)

Schude, like Cewdson create amazing photographic dramas that pull the eyes into the image and you scan every part of it hoping to capture and maybe interpret correctly just what is going on but I think only Schude really knows. I haven't a clue about some of these images but I love the sheer nerve of the photographer in attempting (and succeeding) to capture lots of folk collectively doing everyday things at the same time for the camera. The front cover is a good example of this, it's called 'Phoot camp'.
One of the nice things about looking at these photos is that repeat viewing throws up something you hadn't noticed before, usually an object, maybe partially obscured and away from the main focal point of the image. The back pages have thumbnails of all the photos with a title, date and location, the titles are mostly one word and don't offer any insight about the content.
The book is a handsome production, printed in Italy by Damiani with a three hundred screen on a silky matt art paper and it can be picked up quite cheaply, too.
