Annemie Martin is a freelance photographer who graduated from the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in 2018. She is living and working in Berlin, Hamburg, and Konstanz.
In her photographic works she deals with both political-social complexities and social- philosophical phenomena. The subtle and sensitive artistic transformations mix real and fictional and reach aesthetically into the poetic and associative.
Her work has been shown in national and international exhibitions, including the Rencontres de la photographie de Montpellier, Goethe Institut London, Photofestival Rotterdam and Willy Brandt Haus Berlin. In 2017 she received a scholarship from the Klaus Stemmler Foundation on the subject of Brexit.
About the book:
The series “Von Kartoffelrosen und brennenden Baumkronen” (Of potato roses and burning treetops), by Annemie Martin and Jana Kießer, reflects the changes to everyday life during the Covid-19 pandemic. Based 800km apart – Annemie spent much of the period on an island in Lake Constance, whilst Jana was in Berlin. The two photographers conducted their dialogue through photographs, personal texts, notes, thoughts, memories and dreams between March 2020 and May 2021.
The book also contains space for the readers to make their own notes and reflect on their own experiences of the pandemic.
In November 2021, the book was awarded bronze by the German Photobook Prize.
