Hanspeter Lehman was born in 1949 in Switzerland. His passion for fotography is raised when he is sixteen years old. With a simple camera he works pictures, which for him had a special magic, as he narrates. Some years later he also starts with abstract painting. In the early nineties he works with a polaroid camera and uses double exposure. In 2009 he acquires a digital camera and his most work-intensive years begin. In 2017 the publisher Theodor Boder at Mumpf edits a book of Hanspeter Lehmanns art: "The wild photographer – portfolio of Hanspeter Lehmann" with the comment: "The photographer Hanspeter Lehmann presents herewith his first portfolio. The overview shows szenes full of poetry, but also of drama, weather, landscapes, light and humans. These components form the nucleus of images looking nearly like paintings. In addition the book shows Hanspeter Lehmann’s experimental art with the polaroid camera."
