CHARACTERS by Ruediger Glatz

The series is self-contained and was developed in the context of Ruediger Glatz´s portrait on the fashion scene, THE NEW BLACK, that begun 2009, still is in progress and is not being exhibited yet.
For this portrait series of 12 international personalities from different genres, Glatz focused on the very one thing they have in common…a strong character. He chose the combination of a close-up portrait and 2 moments of their lives that give a brief insight in their stories.

An artist collaboration of Ruediger Glatz with the prestigious Italian shoemaker SUTOR MANTELLASSI.
