Richard Tuschman creates poetic photographic images for book covers, magazines, advertising and gallery exhibition. He began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990’s, developing the signature style that synthesized his interests in graphic design, photography, painting and assemblage. This digital work found a wide audience in the commercial sector, and his work has since been featured on the pages of magazines, annual reports, book jackets, and catalogs for clients such as Adobe Systems, The New York Times, Penguin, Sony Music, Newsweek, and Random House, among others.
Richard explains his work by saying, “I create painterly photographic montages of staged, open-ended figurative narratives, currently inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper. The backgrounds of the pieces are dollhouse size sets, which are combined digitally with the photographed live models. Through the images, I attempt to address themes of intimacy, isolation, loss, hope, and other aspects of the human condition.”
