About Johnny Martyr
Photo of Johnny Martyr by Stephanie Lee © 2014
Johnny Martyr is a contemporary photographer whose concentration is on available light black & white photojournalism in the Frederick, Maryland area. Martyr's informal portraiture & documentary art can be found in the pages of Marie Claire, TED, Lomography, The Sun, Modern Wedding, BuzzFeed, & others.
Martyr's work is informed by the raw, emotional power of historic 20th century photojournalism. He blends digital scanning & editing techniques with traditional shooting & processing methods to achieve a classic look with modern share-ability.
By stripping down mainstream photographic practices; avoiding on-camera lighting, automation, excluding color and crafting with silver grain and vintage optics, Martyr's images convey a simple honesty and timelessness that are not often found in contemporary event photography or photographic art.
Martyr also offers wedding & family portrait services to select clients with Martyr & Lee Photography.
