My first memory of photography was as a child, circa 1984. With a day-glo yellow 110 film camera in hand I feverishly running around the backyard burning through rolls of 36.
I filled my high school schedule with any photography classes offered, sometimes sneaking into the darkrooms when I should have been in algebra. This is when I also discovered I could combine my passions for photography and music. I love photographing live performances and the behind-the-scenes of the music world.
On a daily basis I photograph fashion, portraits, food, performances and editorial content for print and online.
Drawing influence from an eclectic variety of sources such as nature, rock ‘n’ roll, film noir, pop culture and vintage photography, I am constantly inspired and never short of ideas.
Martin Sitar draws because he needs to. His often detailed drawings juxtapose the living with the manufactured and flirt with the unlimited impracticality of a daydreamer.
