About the artist

Daniel Schuman lives photography. Being a photographer is not just a job for him, its a passion. He loves the diversity of the medium and the opportunity to express himself as an artist, as well as to discover new worlds through commissioned work. "The coordinates of the human" have become an overarching topic of his artistic work ever since his civil service in a hospice. They connect his book projects, in which he deals with love and family, life and transience. Those photographs are created out of the need to find answers to his questions in life, as well as to help the people he portrays and the people who look at his pictures. Schumann has exhibited his artistic projects in Europe, America, Asia, and Australia. Those works have been awarded several grants and awards, notably a Fulbright Scholarship. Furthermore, he has published three photo books in Germany and the United States. Since 2010, he has worked as a freelance photographer for companies and editorials. He studied photography at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, followed by the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, and is currently working on his Masters at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen.

About the book

As a Fulbright grantee in San Francisco, I wanted to carry forward the idea of family portraits in such a diverse and liberal city and express the freedom and beauty that I experienced in California. Since working on my book Princesses and Football Stars, I have become very interested in the subject of family portraits. I decided to take images of LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender] families and couples, as an investigation on the shift in understanding family life. The ease of how people with varied sexual orientation, cultures, and religions live together in San Francisco is amazingly enlightening. Thus, this project is both a declaration of love to this wonderful city and also an encounter with people, their concepts of life, and their dreams. The portraits are photographed in color to underline the implicit commonness that is characteristic for the lives of LGBT families and couples in San Francisco. Furthermore, it was important for me to provide enough space to the protagonists of my photographs to allow them the comfort to express their individual personalities in front of me and my camera. The title of this project, International Orange, the color of the Golden Gate Bridge, is at the same time a reference to San Francisco, the rainbow flag of the gay movement, and an international significance of freedom.
