Important stories,

immersive storytelling

Martins subjects range from the refugee crisis in the Middle East to environmental impact pieces that puts the viewer in the middle of the breathtaking places on this earth that are threatened by human conquest.

He strives to show forgotten places and subjects in his images, and tell the stories of individuals that are not regularly picked-up in the main-stream media.

Working in the intersection of journalism, photography and technology, Martin is intent on changing the media landscape from what it is today – developing more powerful storytelling, fit for the digital age, to tell the stories that matter.
