Albrecht Fuchs has become known for his portraits of artists. The hazard for any photographers taking pictures of this cohort is that they will double an already well-known image of the prominent person, or be taken in by a practiced self-presentation. Although Fuchs plays with expectations of identification and recognition, he goes beyond the usual poses to show his protagonists in almost private moments as pensive individuals, at once introspective and self-aware.
