Hermann Klecker

Born and raised in Dortmund in 1968, used to live in the areas of Cologne/Düsseldorf, Zurich and Stuttgart and lives now again in the area of Munich.

All began in 1995 when he obtained SLR, nearly for free. Since then he follows an autodidactical approach into into a number of photographic genres which include some rather rare techniques like pinholes, cyanography, polaroid transfers or infrared film and digitals. 

He publishes his most recent work in fotocommuntiy, 500px and on facebook. Most of his photographs are taken on his travels or hin his studio (which used to be Lichtschmiede in Munich). He still uses his darkroom occasonally although most of his work is digital by now.
