Hasted Kraeutler is currently hosting a major retrospective of Martin Schoeller’s unique portrait photography, which has been organized to coincide with the release of his Portraits Coffee Table Book, spanning 15 years of the photographer’s illustrious career.

Schoeller’s work has a playfulness that reminds me a little it of Annie Leibovitz from back when she was all the rage. These portraits are very challenging to shoot because you can’t get a direct shot without getting yourself in the glare of the frame’s glass, so apologies for so many side angle shots, but it could not be helped. Here are a few of our favorites from the show!

Steve Carell

Steve Carell, star of The Office, has tape over his face. Clever.

Jeff Koons

I believe this shot of artist Jeff Koons was taken for his New York Magazine exposé in 2013. Gazing Ball had just opened at David Zwirner gallery. Good times.

Cate Blanchett

Here is actress Cate Blanchett. She is so beautiful, and also an excellent actress!

Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis: I saw his standup comedy routine once and it was hilarious.

Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman, also a very funny lady

Christian Bale

Everybody knows this photo of Christian Bale, which references his character in American Psycho. The movie was not very good, but I just could not bring myself to read the book.

Ozzy Osbourne

I love this photo of Ozzy Osbourne.

Michael Douglas

Here is actor Michael Douglas. Did you see him in the Liberace movie? He was amazing.

You should go see this exhibit.

Martin Schoeller’s Portraits will be on Exhibit Through January 3rd, 2015 at Halsted Kraeutler, Located at 537 West 24th Street in the Chelsea Gallery District.

JewsVote.Org and Sarah Silverman Promote The Great Schlep

Jewsvote.org launched a new campaign today called “The Great Schlep” — a national effort to mobilize young Jews to go to Florida to convince their grandparents to vote for Barack Obama. The Great Schlep was officially introduced with the release of an irreverent video from Actress / Comedian Sarah Silverman, promoting the effort with the proclamation: “If Barack Obama doesn’t win this election, I am going to blame the Jews, so get your fat Jewish asses on a plane to Florida!” Using cutting-edge political mobilization technology pioneered by Jewsvote.org, volunteers, also known as “schleppers” will have the tools to network and coordinate outreach efforts in the key swing states like Florida. Droga5, a New York-based advertising agency, produced the Silverman video and is well known in the advertising world, especially for their recent Mark Echo – Air Force 1 viral video that was viewed millions of times. Be sure to visit the official website, The Great Schlep Dot Com, watch Sarah Silverman’s hilarious NSFW video, sign up, join their Face Book Page, and buy some swag!

Sarah and Jimmy: No Longer Effing

Sad ClownsSad Clowns

It’s no secret that I’m a serious romantic sap-a-holic: all “in love with love” and shit like that. It’s pretty ridiculous. So I am understandably beyond devastated and completely inconsolable, having just heard the news that one of my favorite show biz couples,Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel, have broken up. Man, this is a drag. They looked so cute together and they were both politically incorrect comedians! How can you not make that work? Maybe the break-up had something to do with the fact that Jimmy was Fucking Ben Affleck.
