His work comprises Polaroids, staged photography, portraits as well as works, which explore the border to documentation. With topics including death, sex and age. The dressed body is ubiquitous.

They are exhibited at FotoMuseum Provincie Antwerp, and released in an illustrated book by Kehrer Publishing – plus we have a peek for you GoSee. Not to be missed!

The double volume collector’s edition is available as a luxuriously signed limited edition of 500.

Graydon Carter, Editor in Chief of Vanity Fair, on Howards work: 'Howard Schatz is so versatile that this volume at times seems like the work of a dozen photographers, Weegee, Avedon, Penn, Beaton, Newton, and Goude, among them. He has affection for his subjects -athletes, dancers, models, actors, pregnant moms, and interesting nobodies – and it shows in every remarkable image. Sometimes funny, often dramatic, he is a master both of the quiet revealing portrait and the explosive surprise.'

04.05.2015 • The new book by Patrick Remy is dedicated to erotic photography. It is not about satisfaction but desire he tells us. For 'Desire: New Erotic Photography', he compiled works by up-and-coming photographers who walk the thin line between art and mainstream including David Bellemere, Massimo Leardini, Jonathan Leder, Henrik Purienne, Esther Teichmann, and the fantastic Hester Scheurwater, whom we met at the NoFoundPhotoFair in Paris. The illustrated book wishes to stage the nude body as an esthetic element of artistic nude photography. One central question is also, which photos are considered erotic in the digital age and the flood of pornography on the Internet.

Compiled by Paris resident author and publisher Patrick Remy, a specialist in the area of contemporary fashion and photography. Patrick started writing about photography in 1992. He has contributed to many magazines including Vogue Paris, Mixte, Paradis, l'Œil, Journal des Arts, Beaux-Arts, L'Officiel, Jalouse, Numéro, and AD.
