Marc Schmidt documents street life in Miami with his smartphone. Reminiscent of Walker, Vishniac, Atget, Lange and Arbus, Marc Schmidt’s photography is strong and thought-provoking, reflecting the zeitgeist of the postmodern World. Using the simplest of tools, his iPhone camera and his bicycle for transportation, Schmidt has created a poignant visual essay of Miami’s inner city and its denizens. Schmidt’s affinity and respect for his subject matter are evident in the narrative structure of his compositions and the intuitive poetic resonance of his imagery. Marc Schmidt was born in Chicago, raised in Hamburg. A physician by profession, Schmidt has had a love affair with photography since his teen years when he started documenting street scenes in Hamburg. He was discovered by Kiwi Arts Group, and had his first one man exhibit in 2012.
