Additional Info // about Michael Schnabel
Michael Schnabel's work is characterised by the complexity of its subject matter. The right, ‘decisive’ moment is an essential feature of his work, because it is by means of meticulous preparation, a clear concept and extreme sensitivity to the components, time and light that Schnabel literally ‘composes’ his visual worlds. The demands that he makes on himself and his work mean that his images transcend the circumstances that give rise to them. Thanks to his focus on precision, the resulting photographs acquire a truly aesthetic and timeless quality.
