Last night, I went to the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in Manhattan to hear one of my favorite photographers speak. Howard Schatz was a ophthalmologist in San Francisco who loved photography. 20 years ago, he ditched medicine and moved to New York.
I first became aware of him when I purchased his book about redheads called Seeing Red. As I learned last night, he has over ongoing 40 projects ranging from redheads to underwater dancers to boxers. This 75 year old photographer is an amazingly prolific, innovative, and daring photographer.
