Opulent, visionary and emotionally evocative are just some of the adjectives used to describe the stunning fine art photography of Australian artist Troy Schooneman.

Schooneman’s highly original, intense, and often melancholy portraits of young men from ethnically diverse backgrounds – frequently mistaken for paintings or drawings rather than contemporary fine art photographs – are redolent in many respects of the work of the great Italian master painters of the 16th and 17th centuries. Schooneman’s work is exquisitely sensual, luminous with rich, saturated colors and infused with an almost surreal painterly quality.

His portraits, which include a number of Mannesrist-inspired male nudes, take us on a journey beyond mere masculine beauty and allow us a glimpse of the profound elegance created by juxtaposing the physical presence of his subjects with the themes of vulnerability, loneliness, fear, uncertainty, and sadness – emotions that society often demands men hide from public view.

Schooneman has captured this elegance with such subtlety that we are often left transfixed by the seemingly endless contradictions created by his portraits.
