How do you tell a great artist from a good artist or even a mediocre artist especially in a world where images, the same images, are so ubiquitous? We think the answer is simple: A great artist gets us to see in a new way or see the same thing in a new way. Howard Schatz, the retinal surgeon who decided 35 years-ago to become an artist, does just that.
Schatz first established a following in the 1990s with two collections of underwater photography, Water Dance and Pool Light. He has since gone on to photograph dancers, athletes, circus performers and design and execute his own compositions.
His work recently showed at the Brooklyn Museum as part of its "Who Shot Sports" exhibition. His work has been shown in numerous museums, including the Whitney, the Guggenheim, San Francisco MOMA, the Met, MOMA, and that Art Institute of Chicago, and can be found in numerous private collections. Schatz has published 26 books of his work.
