Martin Osner Art Photographer teaching a class

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa (1963), Martin Osner opened his first photographic studio in Johannesburg (1985), where he established a solid reputation as a professional photographer and artist. In 1993 he co-founded the National College of Photography, which today has become the premier photographic training institution in Southern Africa. Osner eschews photography, favouring a more expressive vision that accords with his visual understanding and spiritual appreciation of the world. A multi-award-winning artist, including voted the best contemporary international artist 2008 / 2009 by Arteque art volume 3 (Masters of Today), his photography is characterised by an urge to explore with the willingness to experiment.

The Art Photography Gallery was opened by Martin Osner in July 2010 in the trendy suburb of Green Point in Cape Town to celebrate the last twenty years of Martin Osner's photography. Images and collections on display consist of a unique selection of social documentary, landscape and abstract prints and a number of his delicate mixed media artworks and collectables. Although dedicated to showcasing Osner's artwork, the gallery exhibits several other exciting fine art photographers. Committed to showing high-quality imagery and focused on outstanding customer service, the gallery has gone from strength to strength. Besides the framed pieces on display, the gallery keeps many of the most popular stock prints.
