Owen Schumacher

Owen Schumacher is an actor, writer and photographer.
Originally a stand-up comedian, he later worked for many radio- en television shows.
For more than thirteen years he has been one of the main writers and performers behind a respected satirical comedy show on Dutch television, called Koefnoen. This programme was rewarded the Dutch critics Prize for best televison programme (Zilveren Nipkow-schijf) in 2006 for it's ability to catch the 'Zeitgeist' excellently.

When this show stopped in 2017, Owen decided to spend more time on his other love: photography, predominantly street photography.
In his work he is still looking for situations that can be the beginning of a scene or story. He's looking at his environment with an ironic but empathetic eye.

So far his work has been exhibited at Vondel CS in Amsterdam, Atrium The Hague, Leica Store Amsterdam and Apeldoorn Fotostad.

In 2018 he made a special trip to Poland, in cooperation with Leica Store Amsterdam and the Polish Tourism Organisation, to bring tribute to the pictures his father made there as a street-photographer in 1963. Their cooperative work has been exhibited at the Leica Store in Amsterdam.

Eight of his pictures were printed in Streets of Amsterdam, a photo book on Dutch street photography, published in 2018 by Mendo and Te Neues.

Since June 2019 Owen has been writing a monthly (photo)column for Holland's oldest Photo Magazine, Focus.

In the summer of 2019 Owen's work was selected by the editors of GUP Magazine for their new project FreshEyes, "a celebration of the best photography talent in Europe and a showcase for the greatest emerging photographers the continent has to offer."

Shortly after that Owen joined De Beeldunie.

Owen makes his street-photographs mainly in Amsterdam and Holland but is available for assignments in Holland and abroad.

Because Owen is also a writer, he's also available for combinations of photography and text.

As a former television host he is also available for presentations, as interviewer and as a host for special occasions concerning photography.
