53 Annual Award Show Judge #2: Howard Schatz

2008 ADCD Show Judge #2: Picture Perfect. Museums, galleries and the media worldwide would be far more drab were it not for the powerful photography shot by Howard Schatz, founder of New York’s Schatz/Ornstein Studio. Howard’s award-winning collections have been captured in seventeen published books, including H2O an exploration celebrating movement and form with imagery made on, over and underwater. Flip through Time, Sports Illustrated, The New Yorker, or Vogue. Watch the Today Show, Good Morning America or the Discovery Channel. Or see ads of Ralph Lauren, Nike, Finlandia Vodka, Sony, Adidas or see Virgin Records. It’s a good chance that your eye was at many points captured by Howard’s breathtaking work. His photos make regular appearances in the Communication Arts Photography Annual, Graphis Photo Annual, and he recently became a recipient of the 2007 Epson Creativity Award.
Howard is another shining example of the blue-chip judges we want to see Colorado’s top work. Stay tuned. News of more outstanding judges is just over the horizon.
