BIOGRAPHY:
Malte Uchtmann (*1996 in Hamburg) is a photographer and media artist based in Leipzig, Germany. He is interested in how concepts of knowledge, truth and reality are expressed and affect our perception and behavior.

Using different visual media he reflects on modes of representation as well as mechanisms of order and control. He often works with and questions the promise of documentary image strategies, combining observation with the imagined.

His work has been awarded the German Photo Book Prize and was shown at various venues and festivals. He currently studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig.
