Martin Dietrich

Germany

Biography

Martin is occupationally trapped in a world of numbers and clauses. Somehow captivated by photography ever since, he started taking photos in 2009 to escape this state of facts and figures for a moment while exploring his creative alter ego. Roaming his hometown Frankfurt, Germany with a camera nearly every day gradually opened his eyes for lines and perspectives. Clearly fascinated by minimalism and abstraction, his view on urbanity reveals unfamiliar impressions of familiar environments.

Despite appreciating the benefits of digital photography, Martin is fascinated by film photography just as well. A large part of his work is shot on medium format film.

When he has no camera in hand, Martin is into listening and discovering music, reading and supporting his local football team in home and away games all over germany and europe. He is married since 2010.
