Frank Machalowski is a German award winning photographic artist, who lives and works in Leipzig. After studying Economics in Berlin and devoting himself to various trades, he started working as a freelance photographer and artist in 2011. He first got into photography as a hobby, mainly focusing on digital photography. He later shifted back to film, as he found the charming characteristics and atmosphere of film photography to be more fascinating. At present, he even develops and prints some of his photos on his own. Some photographs of his series 'monster', 'multiexpo' and 'tierwald' were exhibited in Germany, France, USA, Spain, India, UK and Italy at renowned galleries and festivals. He is part of a permanent collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France in Paris.
