ABOUT THE WORK
Blommers & Schumm made this work for Fantastic Man in 2005. This magazine presents men's fashion through detailed interviews with male celebrities and intellectuals from many different backgrounds. This still life with a film roll is highly graphic and far from a traditional still life. The neutral background and the different shades of white, grey and black contribute to bring forward the cleanness and the pure lines of the composition.  

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHERS
Anuschka Blommers (b. 1969) and Niels Schumm (b. 1969) both studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. They started working together in 1998. Blommers and Schumm question the status quo of fashion photography by operating in a grey zone between fashion, art and photography, with shifting perspectives, where images move back and forth between different meanings. A state of uncertainty thus emerges in which merely an expression or a small detail seems capable of turning an image upside down.

Their photographs have been published in magazines such as Fantastic ManThe GentlewomanAnother MagazinePurpleInterview Magazinei-DDazed & Confused and The New York Times Magazine. Meanwhile their work has been exhibited in museums and galleries among The Stedelijk museum Amsterdam, The Groninger museum, Foam Amsterdam, Schirn kunsthalle Frankfurt, ICA in Boston and Deichtorhallen in Hamburg among others.
