Martin Welker

Photographer, Light Designer & Discoverer
Martin is a freelance photographer, light designer and discoverer. His first steps, literally, took him through his parents' garden to a huge tree where he ate some pears that had fallen down. Since then nature has always been part in his works. As a photographer he focuses on the dialogue with his subjects - whether it is a tree, a mountain or a person, Martin finds a way to belong to the subject, enfolding unique moments and intimate perspectives.

Martin re-uses his travel passion to collect things people usually throw away. His label Upcyclinglights builds beautiful light objects from it, spotlighting human challenges like re-use and waste-reduction efforts.
