Photography

Tuschman, Richard (1956)

Working mostly as a commercial photographer, Richard Tuschman took advantage of his background in fine-art and his passion for dioramas, to pay a beautiful tribute to Edward Hopper - ‘I have always loved the way Hopper’s paintings, with an economy of means, are able to address the mysteries and complexities of the human condition.’ Recreating the painter’s most iconic paintings, the American photographer emulates their vibrant characters and adds a sense of mystery enhanced by the vivid human expressions of his sitters. Carefully lit, his images become even more melancholic and dramatic as they resemble intimate theatrical pieces. For his project, Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz, Richard Tuschman once again mingled his passion for fine arts and photography. By imagining the life of a fictional Jewish family  in 1930s Poland, he has blended cultural and political history, personal memory and homage to such artists as Van Gogh and Rembrandt. More than a photographer, Richard Tuschman is a raconteur.
