Today’s edition is dedicated to Howard Schatz, his latest book PAIRS is the perfect occasion to look back at some of the many features we published on him, but not only, Howard answered our Questionnaire and gave us the text he wrote for his book. Speaking of PAIRS, we will leave it to Graydon Carter, the former editor-in-Chief of Vanity Fair, to introduce Howard and his book.
“Howard Schatz is so versatile that this volume at times seems like the work of a dozen photographers, Weegee, Avedon, Penn, Beaton, Newton, and Goude, among them. He has affection for his subjects -athletes, dancers, models, actors, pregnant moms, and interesting nobodies- and it shows in every remarkable image. Sometimes funny, often dramatic, he is a master both of the quiet revealing portrait and the explosive surprise.” — Graydon Carter, Former Editor-in-Chief, Vanity Fair
