Heinz Schattner

Born in Germany, Schattner matured artistically in Paris and London, and he has always been in love with Italy, where he currently lives and works. He was introduced to the world of photography as a very young man, when he became an assistant to internationally renowned auteurs, and went on to take his first totally independent steps in the fashion sector. His first important commissions included work for the Italian magazines Vogue Bambini and Vogue Uomo, followed by many other European periodicals. His professional development led inevitably to becoming artistic director for TV advertising campaigns and publishing books on his work: Thirtynine Souls - Jewels by Angela Pintaldi for Donna Karan, London; and Ateh, published by F. Motta and presented by Tashimaya 5th Avenue, in New York.

Looking back, it is clear that fashion was the key to Schattner’s sensual, provoc- ative settings and states of being. He sublimates perfection from the women and men he photographs by highlighting their imperfections, and though he focuses on the subject – be it a person or an object – he never ignores the context, creating snapshots of rare magnificence that time cannot dull.

In Schattner’s life and works, travel was, is and always will be the dominant theme. Collaborations with production companies in Miami, Los Angeles and New York City have shaped his life and career, leading him to photograph places and people in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. One work that stands out is an unprecedented publishing project called Wasteland Fashion and Culture, which features photos taken in the interior of Mali. This project led him to form ties with the local Peul, Bambara, Dogon and Tuareg tribes, and allowed them to encounter for the very first time high fashion brands like Richmond, Bikkenbergs and Issey Miyake.

Gifted with an active, imaginative mind, Schattner reveals a constantly evolving personality, never free from a constant yet constructive sense of conflict.
