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

The coordinates of the human have become a central topic of my photography ever since my civil service in a hospice. In my book ‘Purple Brown Grey White Black’, the dying man and his dealing with illness and death are the topic of my photography. For the period of one year, I have accompanied people through photography, who have lived and died in a hospice. I’m telling In many countries, death has become a taboo topic. However, in my pictures, I seek to make death visible, with all the pain and suffering that fatal illnesses entail, but also with the certainty that a final farewell in dignity is possible. I want to show death as something common in the real world.
