Anuschka Blommers (1969) and Niels Schumm (1969), both graduates of the Rietveld Academy, started working together in 1997. Today, they are a successful photography duo, ranked amongst the top fashion photographers. Their work is about people: focus is on the individual, something that is rarely done in the fashion world. They throw the viewers’ expectations of the viewer off balance, playing with perspective and proportions. In each photograph, the viewer is hit with a big surprise, but always one that is beautiful and exactly on the mark.
Blommers & Schumm have exhibited widely in national and international museums including Museum Winterthur (Zurich), Schimkunsthalle (Frankfurt), Maison Europeane (Paris), Institut Néerlandais (Paris), Groninger Museum, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam and FOAM (Amsterdam).
