Martyr holds that the organic qualities of film create a captivating & timeless atmosphere as well as a signature of authenticity & class. His use of non-automated cameras requires a deliberation & commitment to the subject that translates in his photos on an emotional level.
His work is informed by a belief that beauty is everywhere but is best enjoyed when people & events are portrayed as they are without posing or editing.
Coupled with his documentary style, natural light also contributes to the sense of sincerity & honesty in Martyr's body of work. He doesn't use intrusive flash or additional artificial lighting to force a shot & disrupt a scene, but rather he is ever vigilant for alignment of content, moment & illumination.
Today, Martyr offers event & portrait photo services to select clients with Martyr & Lee Photography.
