Item description for Jason Schmidt: Artists 2000-2006 by Alix Browne...
For six years, Jason Schmidt has traveled all over the world, to biennials, fairs, far-flung locations and home studios, photographing artists in their natural environments. This, his first book, is an intimate glimpse into the creative processes of some of his most important and exciting colleagues, accompanied by texts in their own words. Schmidt, whose work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar and The New Yorker,makes no pretense of forging a coherent international contemporary art scene--he's more interested in cataloguing its heterogeneity. His subjects include painters (Laura Owens, Luc Tuymans), photographers (Thomas Demand, Philip-Lorca diCorcia), video artists (Doug Aitken, Bill Viola), sculptors (Liz Larner, Marc Quinn), installation artists (Maurizio Cattelan, Gregor Schneider) and those who defy the categorical imperative of medium (Sophie Calle, Paul McCarthy). Each portrait is its own self-contained world, full of the mythology, symbols and methodology that inform, and ultimately become, the subject's art.
