Uwe H. Martin

Uwe H. Martin is a visual storyteller working on long-term, in-depth, documentary photographic projects around the world. Currently he partners with Frauke Huber on a set of multimedia documentaries about the global commons water, seed and land: White Gold investigates the social and environmental effects of global cotton production. Their new visual research project LandRush explores the impact of large-scale agro investments on rural economies and land-rights, the boom of renewable fuels, the reallocation of land and the future of agriculture around the world. In 2010 Frauke and Uwe founded Aggreys Dream, a project supporting a school in a slum in Mombasa, Kenya.

Besides their collective work Uwe H. Martin is a multimedia producer at the prestigious Bombay Flying Club and a senior lecturer at Camera Arts in Luzern.
