"Third Life" is the new monograph by the photographer's photographer, Norbert Schoerner. Assembled as a cinematic narrative, this book collects new and previously unseen work produced over the last seven years. In equal measures a photographic diary and a sequence of remarkable tableaux, "Third Life" traces Schoerner's journeys across the globe. Through the juxtaposition of carefully chosen urban and rural landscapes with images from his photographic sketchbooks, Schoerner explores representation in the context of mass availability and re-purposing of digital images in the www environment.

Review quote

The photographer Norbert Schoerner hails from Munich, but has spent most of his life developing his career elsewhere. Primarily based in London, Schoerner has shot for both magazines (including T, The Face and AnOther) and prestigious fashion campaigns (Comme des Garcons and Prada). He has also managed to collaborate on a few books here and there. Now, he's come out with his second monograph titled "Third Life," a hardcover photo diary featuring peculiar and personal moments from his travels, with a slight bent on picking up juxtapositions between natural settings (deserts, oceans and lush forests) and completely artificial ones (mannequins outfitted in metallic Lycra, a severed plastic ear on a lawn). It's a commentary on what Schoerner calls "living in a digital stone age."--Yuri Chong "T: The New York Times Style Magazine "
