Enjoy the View


Creative, Simple, Architecture. Three words to describe what Martin Lindner really loves in his life — especially on weekends: “Some weekends truly exist for just being lazy and doing nothing. Some are there for you to do the things you love to do. Set yourself a goal that makes you jump out of bed in the morning. For me that means exploring my home town Cologne street by street, shopping mall to the backyard of a small house as well as from the top of hotel roofs to underground transport stations like this one. While strolling around with friends of mine to the enjoy time together, I keep an creative eye open and make my friends part of my photography. I surely need a day between Saturday and Sunday though.”

Martin used to take pictures with his mobile phone only. He couldn’t imagine switching to a full-frame camera ever. Then, his mindset has changed, he just needs a higher resolution on most of his photographs. But this doesn’t mean that he doesn’t value his old kind of camera anymore …

“I have my phone with me basically all the time. I surprisingly often end up walking by something that interests me, and I take a quick shot for future reference or even just use my phone to get a good shot of my vantage point. I also use my phone for most of the editing I do for my photographs,” and finally, “I enjoy playing around with the rather small size of a phone compared to a full-frame camera. The small size lets me capture from angles that are otherwise not possible.”

Among his tag series, Minimal People and The Hanging Collection, took all around the world.
