Bernd Walz, Studied biology and chemistry and obtained his PhD at the University of Heidelberg. He worked as a scientist and professor for zoology and animal physiology for more than 40 years and retired in 2013.
Photography accompanied his whole professional life as a method for scientific documentation. However, downstream 2006 photography became a real passion, a creative and artistic counterweight to his scientific work.
Recently Bernd Walz concentrates more and more on fine-art landscape and waterscape photography as well as abstract microphotography. In all photographic projects he is exploring the artistic possibilities and aesthetics of a minimalistic approach.
