Klaus-Martin Gareis is an autodidactic photographer. In 2004 he started experimenting with analogue equipment and development procedures and over the years created his own work process including oil colour to create unique large scale works.

While the photography itself always stands for the beginning of a complex process towards and finished work, the main goal for each sujet is to find its own metaphorical language, emphasizing each photography uniquely.
