Uwe H. Martin is a visual storyteller working on long-term, in-depth, documentary photographic projects around the world that combine photography with documentary film, text and sound. He documented the daily life in Bangladesh and the struggle of people suffering Narcolepsy.

Currently he partners with Frauke Huber on a set of multimedia documentaries about the global commons water, seed and land. In 2010 Frauke and Uwe founded Aggreys Dream, a project supporting a school in a slum in Mombasa, Kenya, which became the blueprint for the establishing of the Freelens Foundation.

Uwe H. Martin studied photojournalism in Hanover, Germany and with the support of a Fulbright grant at the Missouri School of Journalism. Besides his photographic practice he is teaching photography and multimedia storytelling at the Camera Arts program at Lucerne University, the Henri-Nannen-Schule and Akademie für Publizistik in Hamburg, the Freelens Multimedia Workshops, the Fachhochschule Bielefeld and the University for the Arts in Bremen.
