Perfectly framed architecture photographs by Hans-Martin Dölz


With a healthy dose of perfectly framed architecture photographs, German Photographer Hans-Martin Dölz renders particular moments of time that transcend the mundane and place value on moments of stillness.

Hans-Martin Dölz studied Mathematics and Business Administration at the Universities of Bochum and Göttingen and graduated in 1979 with a master’s degree in Business Administration. After retiring from his job he found interest in art. His first works were graphic images, partly created by using self-written algorithms and imaging software. He was fascinated by colors, lines, and shapes.

This soon led him to photography. In the beginning, the main focus of his works fathomed the abstract possibilities of photography, and later after visiting the Stuttgart City Library, he was interested in showing architectural design.

In contrast to German photographer Candida Höfer, who mainly shows architecture without any people, Hans-Martin Dölz likes to include people in the architectural environment.

Hans-Martin always tries to catch a scenery in a way that nearly no post-processing of the image is necessary. That often requires a long wait but it’s worth it.

Both his abstract images and the images showing architecture with people were already awarded in prestigious international photography contests.
