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 by operating in a grey 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 an image upside down.
Their photographs have been published in magazines such as Fantastic Man, Gentlewoman, Another Magazine, Purple, Interview, ID, Dazed & Confused and NY Times Magazine. Meanwhile their work has been exhibited in museums and galleries among The Stedelijk museum Amsterdam, The Groninger museum, Foto museum Foam, Schirn kunsthalle frankfurt, ICA in Boston and Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.
