Z. Michael Schmidt

Z. Michael Schmidt

Having lived in diverse environments at different stages of my life I am a product of all, be it consciously or subliminally. Raised in Switzerland to an American Mother of Russian descent and a German-born Father of Polish descent, both of whom founded CBS records Israel, I was from an early age surrounded by music and art. At the age of 10 I received my first box camera and thus I began a nearly 50 year span of taking pictures. The themes of my photographs are solitude, abandonment, simplicity. I mainly take portraits in black and white. I never ask or give the subject any instructions. Concentrating on what I refer to as la condition humaine, my motto is “For a face tells the entire story.”
