Z. Michael Schmidt’s predominantly black-and-white photographic portraits depict the solitude of the human condition with compassionate simplicity. Never posing his subjects or imparting instructions, Schmidt’s tightly cropped images focus on faces and the stories they tell. Stark, clear, and straightforward, his images are pared down to their essentials, the subjects weaving complex webs of human emotion via simple gestures and candid expressions.
