Herr Merzi


Worked With Models

I am an analog photographer from Frankfurt, Germany.

I am an analog photographer from Frankfurt, Germany.

I try to create atmospheres with my photos, sometimes exotic and fantasy-like, sometimes familiar scenes of everyday life. I capture and evoke emotion, telling little stories with each click of the shutter. There is a mood of intimacy in my photos, where the nudity of the models is natural, and is secondary to the rest of the story being told by the photos.

Merz postulates that when the models he photographs are nude, their true selves emerge. There is no clothing, no costume, no artifice to hide behind. The look in their eyes is genuine, their expressions a bit stronger, and this authenticity is one of the things that compels him to shoot fine art nudes.

I began my photographic journey through the once popular Suicide Girls website in early 2007. Since I became awaren of this reality, I have jumped headfirst into analog photography with expired Polaroid film to produce artistically satisfying fine art nude images.

My work has been widely exhibited and recognized. My photos have been exhibited as part of Expolaroid in Nantes and Rennes, France; at the Blackbox Gallery in Portland, Oregon; and at ART Undressed in Miami, Florida. My photos have been featured in print magazines, including Klassik Magazine and Mein Heimlich Auge #31 Erotic Yearbook. Those photos have also been featured on online platforms, including the Paul Giambarbra website, Impossible Project, and Polaroid of the Day.
