Find Martin on
Martin’s work is a reflection on the human condition in urban space. He explores the underlying emotions of the city between existential angst, boredom and joy.
Berlin plays a crucial role in Martin’s work. His view on contemporary Berlin is both: poetic and at the same time analytical.
Martin is a keen observer of the fragility and transiency in urban life. In his street photography Martin emphasizes the contrast between the soft fluid human shape and the hard and static fabric of city infrastructure.
Martin uses strong geometrical compositions, still he thinks of his photography as associative and lyrical.
