One of the most in-demand photographers working today, Howard Schatz has been the driving force behind the dramatic evolution of underwater photography for more than a decade. His breathtaking works of the uncommonly graceful and aquatically gifted dancers, models, and performers show a visionary celebration of movement and form.
For his work in the water, Schatz has built a custom pool designed specifically for photography, that allows him to shoot year-round without chemicals. Working in this pool, he can pull light from any direction and find new poetry in the movements of his models.
In “H2O”, his new, mesmerizing book (Bulfinch Press/November 2007) Schatz draws on the worlds of fine art, fashion, mythology, pop culture, and literature to capture a dazzling variety of subjects in ways that we have never seen before.
On the occasion of the publication of “H2O” LUMAS celebrates Howard Schatz with the solo show H2O – The Medium is the Magic. Selected photographs from the book are available as signed and numbered prints at LUMAS.
