Martin Roemers (b. 1962) is a photographer living in Delft, the Netherlands. He studied at the AKI Academy of Visual Arts in Enschede. For many years, his work has focused on projects concerning the long-term effects of warfare which have been exhibited internationally and resulted in the books Kabul (2003), Relics of the Cold War (2009) and The Eyes of War (2012). Using custom-tailored photographic gestures, Roemers’s visually arresting renderings of his subject create an opening for personal reflection and interpretation. The concept for Metropolis (2007-2015) is based on a long-time fascination with megacities. While visiting Mumbai in 2003, Martin Roemers pondered on how he could encapsulate within a single image the boundless, almost tangible energy, chaos and tumult of a city of more than ten million people. Roemers has published multiple books and his widely exhibited work resides in various major collections of museums, institutions and private collectors, among them the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, TX.
