Martin Bäuml was born and grew up in the Swabian Alb in Germany. After his first degree in geography at the Technical University of Munich and a brief period of professional activity as a qualified geographer, he studied photography at the University of Applied Sciences for Design in Bielefeld. Since his diploma in photo design in 2000, he has been travelling internationally for magazines and companies, primarily on the subject of "corporate stories". Bäuml's feeling for special places and his affinity for emotional lighting moods also flow into his free image series. Often it is not untouched nature or clinically pure urban areas that interest him, but rather "cultural areas" as places of interaction between nature and human activity. With his series of works, which tend to be in the border area of abstraction, Martin Bäuml’s art work can also be seen in fine art exhibitions.
