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, PetaPixel, BuzzFeed, & others.
Martyr's work is informed by the gravity of historic, mid-century photojournalism. He blends traditional photochemical shooting & processing methods with digital scanning, editing & printing techniques to achieve a classic look with modern "legs."
By stripping down mainstream photographic practices; avoiding on-camera lighting, automation, excluding color & crafting with silver grain & vintage optics, Martyr's images convey an honesty & timelessness that are not often found in contemporary event photography or photographic art.
Martyr offers wedding & family portrait services to select clients with Martyr & Lee Photography.
