The Face

A magnetic succession of stripped-down faces, straightforward portraits of the very famous and absolutely unknown,Close Up allows for a hypnotic exploration of the human face. Martin Schoeller's portraits offer a study of characters rather than personalities while seeking to answer the basic question, what can you read in someone's face?

Every week, Schoeller is called upon to capture portraits of the most recognized personalities of our time, from Britney Spears to President Bill Clinton. This German-born photographer spent the last seven years collecting this series of portraits, otherwise known as his "Big Heads."
