“No deceit can be put up; all faces are attractive and repulsive at the same time. Nevertheless, emotion is still there. This is because Martin Schoeller’s pitiless way of showing everything that is real – wrinkles, eyes swollen with tears, skin folds – brings up the bare human being.”

“Celebrity is all about surface and saturation and the “big heads” of Martin Schoeller push those qualities to the limit. They give the face, the human expression, a new dimension, and that’s why we keep looking at them. That’s what portraits are for, what they are all about.”
