Straddling fine art and fashion photography, the German-born, London-based photographer Norbert Schoerner (born 1966) has presented his work in many different contexts, from international gallery shows to glossy ad campaigns for Prada, Yojhi Yamamoto and Miu Miu, and magazines such as "i-D," "Harpers Bazaar," "Vogue" and "032c." Having captured the likes of Jeff Koons, Luc Tuymans, Lawrence Weiner, Richard Prince and Damien Hirst, Schoerner now has a hefty portfolio of classic portraits of artists to his name. Alongside such widely known works, he also maintains a more informal, diaristic photographic practice in which he snatches momentary glimpses from a hectic schedule, with images varying in scale from a puddle on the sidewalk to the side of a glacier, or from a close-up of a showroom mannequin to a vast stretch of empty desert. The first monograph on the photographer in a decade, "Norbert Schoerner: Third Life" gathers a previously unseen selection of these remarkable "sketchbook" images. Made over the course of seven years, they are assembled here in the manner of stills from a cinematic narrative, tracing Schoerner's own journeys around the globe.

Review quote

Photographer Norbert Shoerner speaks of Japan as a place where a different standard for artifice applies. He could, at the same time, be referring to his own view of the world as seen throught the photographs of his new book Third Life.Accumulated over the past eight years, the images roughly divide into unashamedly digital snaps and technical large format analogue observations. Juxtapositions of images in the book induce a strange malaise as do interventions of imageless white pages. Mistakes and accidents are championed and corrupted digital files produce a sort of optical-static printed adjacent to healthy image counterparts. Reality and projected reality are inseperable.--Emma Reeves"AnOther Magazine" (02/01/2012)
