„I see myself as a kind of diary photographer. I photograph
things and situations not attributable to truthfulness,
but as I feel them situatively. Most of my pictures probably tell
more about myself than about the people or things i photograph.“
Martin Waldbauer is a self-taught photographer. He print and develop on his own. Martin uses a 8×10 inch Toyo field camera, a Rolleiflex 2.8f and a Pentax 67ii. He shoots the majority of his photographs using Kodak’s classic Tri-X film and mainly print on very old and expired fiber paper. For those he’s using the lith printing technique. Martin shapes the photo from start to finish. The photographer does all the printing, spotting, and archival mounting. The pictures on this site are just a little fraction Martin shows on exhibitions and other publications.
