Marc Schmidt is a photographer whose affinity and respect for his subject matter are evident in the narrative structure of his compositions and the intuitive poetic resonance of his imagery. His photographs are very personal, poignant, visual essays of Miami's Inner City and its denizens. He is the winner of the Leica Street Photography Award 2015 and is a BTS photographer for Hollywood movie productions. Sean Baker's "The Florida Project" starring Willem Defoe is his most recent film. A physician turned photographer, Marc Schmidt was born in Chicago and raised in Hamburg.
