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

For my photo project "Princesses and Football Stars", I have portrayed families who have a child with a life-threatening illness. Photographs frequently serve as a document for preserving a cherished memory. This is especially true in cases where a family portrait captures the fragile balance between the wish for normality and the tragedy of illness and impending death. How do we face up to the fact that our lives are finite? Ever since I did my alternative civilian service in a hospice, confronting this question has been a central aspect of my photographic work. I received a grant from the Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia for this book project. The result, Princesses and Football Stars, was honored with the Foreign Artist Award at the China Pingyao International Photography Festival 2010.
