Heinz Baade was born in 1958 in a small village in northern Germany. He discovered at an early age, photography and natural sciences as his great passions and preserves both until today.
Heinz Baade is a autodidact and he looks back on its own 40-year-old photographical experience. He encapsulates a wide range of subjects using analog cameras as he believes that too much of digital manipulation can rob the "soul" of an image. However, he also has all his photographs digitized, because he came to the realization that the work is too time consuming in a darkroom.
Heinz Baade attaches importance to a clear image construction with sharp contrasts, directness and authenticity.
The nature of his photographic work includes a documentary style on the one side and on the other side an artistic aspect – but he also tries to combine both aspects.
