'We mainly focussed on the symmetry in the image by Anton Corbijn. we used this symmetry as inspiration and as a returning expression in the image.'
- Blommers & Schumm
Together with fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen , Blommers & Schumm created Nastya, 2012, based on a photograph by renowned Dutch photographer, Anton Corbijn. 'Christy Turlington, Dublin' was the inspiration for her image, which is on display at &Foam, Vijzelstraat 78, until 17 March 2013.
Blommers and Schumm are the photographer duo Anuschka Blommers (Dutch, 1969) and Niels Schumm (Dutch, 1969). They graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 1996. They have grown into some of Hollands' most wanted fashion and portrait photographers. Their work has been published in Blvd, Purple Magazine, Spin, I-D, Interview Magazine, Self Service, New York Times, Fantastic Man and The Gentlewoman.
In 1998 they won the Best Young Fashion Photography Award at the Festival International des Arts de la Mode in Hyères.
