Frank Bauer, Munich Photographer
Frank studied photography at the Staatliche Fachakademie für Fotodesign in Munich and received his diploma in 1995. After a 12-month stay in Berlin he moved to London in 1997, where he worked as a photographer until 2004, primarily shooting for music magazines and newspaper supplements.
He moved back to Germany in 2005, and to this day he is drawn to portrait photography in the broadest sense. He still considers it a great privilege to approach people curiously and respectfully with photography.
Within the last 10 years he has been passing on his knowledge in photography workshops and as a freelance photography lecturer at the Munich University of Applied Sciences.
Since 2019 he acts as co-organiser and co-curator of Fotodoks, an independent photography festival organized as a collective and dedicated exclusively to documentary photography, held every two years in Munich.
Frank is married and lives in Munich with his wife, their two daughters and Sunny the dog.
