Fritz Liedtke began photographing as a teen, carrying his Kodak 110 Instamatic around on a US tour with his father at age 14, in their little blue Datsun B210. Twenty-five years later, he continues to explore the world, camera in hand.

In the intervening years, Fritz acquired a BFA in Photography; has won numerous awards, grants and residencies for his work; had photographs published, collected, and shown in galleries and museums; wrote articles and essays for magazines and books; lectured and taught workshops on photography and the artistic life; and balanced both commercial and fine art practices. Most recently he was awarded the Critical Mass Top 50 award. He is constantly looking for new ways to approach the world through art.

Portland, Oregon is his home, along with his wife and their bright orange house.
