Participation at the Exhibition SENSITIVE VIEWING HABITS | a preview to photo::vienna #1 (2014)

The sur/face-project is a series of close-up portraits photographed by Vienna-based artist Moritz Schell. It is both an anthropological study and an art project, examining the polarity between existence and appearance, between the face and its representation as a mask. The series is work in progress and growing constantly, aiming to be one day the largest photographic collection of the human face.

Fell in love with photography at the age of seventeen, opening his own studio five years later. Since then working successfully in the field of portrait and fashion photography. His commercial and editorial work is published worldwide. Moritz is known for the vibrant energy of his pictures, crossing the lines between categories and industry standards. Lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
