About Fritz

Fritz Liedtke began photographing as a teen, carrying a Kodak 110 Instamatic on a US tour with his father at age 14, in their little blue Datsun B210.  

Fritz holds a BFA in photography and printmaking, and has won numerous awards, grants, and residencies for his work.  His images have been widely published by magazines such as National Geographic, Lenswork, PDN, Professional Photographer, View Camera Magazine, Rangefinder, Silvershotz, PhotoLife, Diffusion, and blogs such as Lenscratch, Photoeye, LensCulture, China Life Magazine, F-stop, and others.  His work is held in such collections as the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Griffin Museum of Photography, The Haggerty Museum, Portland Art Museum, Yale University Library, Lishui Museum of Photography, Scripps College Rare Book Collection, and more.  View his Vitae here.

Aside from making art, Fritz enjoys creating unique images for his commercial and editorial clients, traveling, and teaching workshops on photography and the artistic life.   He is constantly looking for new ways to approach the world through art.

Fritz and his family call Portland, Oregon their home.  They live on several acres outside of town surrounded by herons, egrets, ducks, bitterns, and frogs.
