Martin Stockberg, a graduate designer, passionate photographer and artist from Aachen, works as a freelance designer for more than 15 years.
Among other activities, he uses the public areas and natural elements such as snow, sand, wood, water… to create unique artworks in the landscape (Land Art). With a drone, he manages to capture his realizations.
We asked him if he would agree to do one design for Phraseanet on the beach of Saint Lunaire during a summer, you can discover it now!
