Frank Machalowski

is a German award winning photographic artist and photographer, who lives and work today in Leipzig. After studying economic studies in Berlin and applying himself to various trades he works today as a freelance photographer and artist. Frank first got into photography as a hobby years ago. At first he was mainly into digital photography, but then he started shifting back to film as he found the charming characteristics and atmosphere of film photography to be most fascinating. Today he develops and prints his photos on his own. His major areas of interest are the city as well as the country side, two opposite fields but to him they kind of attract.

Some photographs of his series 'monster' and 'multiexpo' were shown in Germany, France, USA and Italy at renowned galleries and festivals. He is part of a permanent collection of the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris.

Since 2014 he is a part of the project "Berlin-Photography" represented by the Carpentier Gallery in Berlin (www.berlin-photography.de). It is a collective of 32 photographer who are engaged with the city of Berlin in photographic art.
He is a member of ArtUpfront, a platform for byers and collectors of contemporary photography (www.artupfront.com). Selected works were offered for sale at YourDailyPhotograph.com, a resource for collectors of fineart photography from the California Duncan Miller Gallery.
He is listed at Art Photo Index (www.artphotoindex.com) and LensCulture (www.lensculture.com).

Besides artistic activity, he works for musicians and private persons as an portrait and stills photographer.

Frank works mainly with analogue photographic techniques.
