Each of Troy Schooneman's fine art limited edition prints is hand-signed and numbered by the artist and printed on museum quality Hahnemühle Baryta Rag Archival paper, one of the world's most beautiful 100% cotton fine art archival papers. This impression is from an edition of 25 Schooneman’s portraits, which are influenced by the master painters of the Renaissance, possess a timeless quality and are exquisitely sensual – luminous with rich, saturated colors and infused with an almost surreal painterly quality. His intense, often melancholy yet highly romantic portraits of young men from ethnically diverse backgrounds are frequently mistaken for paintings rather than contemporary fine art photographs. His portraits take us on a journey beyond mere masculine beauty and allow us a glimpse of the profound elegance created by juxtaposing the strength and physical presence of his young male subjects with the themes of vulnerability, uncertainty, and sadness - emotions that society often demands men hide from public view. Schooneman has captured this elegance with great subtlety and we are often left transfixed by the seemingly endless contradictions created by his portraits It is an true inspiration to see this work, Troy’s professionalism in the camera is undoubtedly a great adventure, the set of light that provides that vintage look, which we can see, the selection of guys who pretend to be muses for the lens of Troy is very successful. “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. ― Albert Camus”
