Hans-Martin Dölz studied Mathematics and Business Administration at the Universities of Bochum and Göttingen and graduated in 1979 with a master’s degree in Business Administration.
He began to create art after retiring from his job. Initially he took photographs and changed their appearance through heavy alienation into mainly abstract images. He also tried to create images without any camera, only by using computer algorithms like “processing”.
Since 2013 he focuses more on photography without alteration. Most of his images are inspired by lines, patterns and shapes that are found in the man-made and natural environment. Lately many of his photographs were awarded in prestigious international photo contests. The biggest success was 1st place in the Siena International Photography Awards 2017 in the category "architecture and urban places", honored with the Pangea Prize.
Hans-Martin Dölz now lives and works near Stuttgart, Germany.
