Marco Breuer (b. Landshut, Germany) is well known for his radical approach to the photographic medium. Breuer employs nontraditional photographic techniques that do not rely on the use of a camera, aperture, or film, but instead utilize a combination of photogrammic, abrasive, and incisive techniques to make marks and capture images. His work is in numerous public collections at major institutions around the world and is widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. Currently residing in upstate New York, Breuer has lectured and taught extensively, and received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2006.
