Anuschka Blommers (1969) and Niels Schumm (1969), both studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. They started working together in 1998.
Blommers and Schumm question the status quo of fashion photography. They operate in a zone between fashion, art and photography, with shifting perspectives, where images move back and forth between different meanings.
A state of uncertainty thus emerges in which merely an expression or a small detail seems capable of turning the images upside down.
Their photographs have been published in magazines such as Fantastic Man, Gentle Woman, Another Magazine, Purple, Interview, ID, Dazed & Confused and NY Times Magazine. While their work has been exhibited in musea and galleries among The Stedelijk museum Amsterdam, The Groninger museum, Foto museum Foam, Schirn kunsthalle frankfurt, ICA in Boston and Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.
