Learn about the retrospective.
Howard Schatz has left a legacy of brilliant photographs that look like they came from a multiple of very talented photographers. I thought I had seen it all in photography. Perhaps after this book I have. Brilliant.
—B.MARTIN PEDERSEN, PUBLISHER, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, GRAPHIS
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.
—GRAYDON CARTER, EDITOR IN CHIEF, VANITY FAIR
To survey Howard Schatz's photographic career is to take a tour of a creative mind in perpetual motion. Often breathtaking and always thought-provoking, Howard's oeuvre is the result of a restless and inspired pursuit of beauty and insight. His images are the product of a once-in-generation intellect enabled by a truth-seeking eye.

There are photographers who take pictures and those who make pictures. Howard Schatz is a master of the latter category. In fact, it is evident from the incomprehensible range of work represented in this stunning retrospective
that there is no photographer like Schatz. He is beyond creatively restless and courageous enough to charge ahead into unknown visual territory. Each subject exploration whether it be nudes, dancers, models, athletes, actors, mermaids, abstractions or the homeless is deftly brought to life with a singular vision and beauty that seems impossible coming from one artist.
—KEN CARBONE - DESIGNER, ARTIST AND CHIEF CREATIVE DIRECTOR. CARBONE SMOLAN AGENCY
Far too many photographers find a single visual style and build a career on it. Howard Schatz's creativity and vision could never be so constrained. He has the quintessential ability of all great artists to constantly grow, change, morph, and expand his vision and his images, as this major retrospective demonstrates with stunning originality.
—BROOKS JENSEN, EDITOR. LENSWORK PUBLISHING
Howard Schatz Images 25 Years is a masterwork of innovation. Every page stops you with its power, every image surprises. You are looking at the work of an artist of ideas with an astonishing range. Like all great art, his images can change the way you think about the world.
—TERRY MCDONELL, FORMER EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED
In many years of writing about photography, I've known a baker's dozen truly fine photographers whose work has established them as artists of the first rank. But of all these luminaries, Howard Schatz has produced a greater spectrum of work. His output is nothing short of astonishing — not only a mile wide, but a mile deep. There is simply no one more visually intelligent, adventurous, and indefatigable.
—OWEN EDWARDS, PHOTOGRAPHY CRITIC
The range of the images in this book is unparalleled. I cannot think of another photographer who possesses the genius and skill set that Howard Schatz has. He sees and makes pictures that no one else could imagine.
—STEVE FINE, PICTURE EDITOR, FLIPBOARD
Viewing this extensive collection in one sitting made me realize how fearless Howard Schatz is when it comes to experimentation. I am repeatedly amazed that he can keep finding new ways to express the human form.
—PATRICK COYNE, EDITOR/DESIGNER, COMMUNICATION ARTS
Howard Schatz has spent 25 years reimagining the human body, producing through his lens improbable movements, unexpected shapes and unlikely combinations, even a rainbow of impossible colors added to everyday skin. This collection is a lasting treat.
—VICKI GOLDBERG, PHOTOGRAPHY CRITIC
Howard Schatz's work is inventive and extremely beautiful. When I first saw his book "At the Fights," I was blown away by how he captured the intensity and grace of the world of boxing. His new monograph continues to push the boundaries of photography. The best compliment I can give Howard is that I am jealous of the pictures he makes.
—ROBERT LONGO, ARTIST
Howard Schatz's retrospective has drawn from his collection of some 4 million images, most never before published. These two volumes provide an incite into his masterful photographic career, which has explored the
body and the psyche, profiling what is means to be human.
