Fritz began photographing as a teen, carrying his Kodak 110 Instamatic around on a US tour with his father at age 14, in their little blue Datsun B210. Twenty-five years later, he continues to explore the world, camera in hand.
In the intervening years, Fritz acquired a BFA in Photography; won numerous awards and grants for his work; enjoyed artist residencies in various places; had photographs published, collected, and shown in galleries and museums; wrote articles and essays for various publications; lectured and taught workshops on photography and the artistic life; and balanced both commercial and fine art practices. He also loves to travel. He is constantly looking for new ways to approach the world through art.
Fritz’s work has been widely published, in magazines such as Lenswork, PDN, Professional Photographer, View Camera Magazine, Rangefinder, Silvershotz, PhotoLife, Diffusion, and blogs such as Lenscratch, Photoeye, F-stop, and others. He has work in collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Griffin Museum of Photography, Portland Art Museum, Scripps College Rare Book Collection, and more.
Portland, Oregon is his home, along with his wife and daughter and their bright orange house.
Beauty is only skin deep. But ah! me; freckles go to the bone.
