RememberThis.photos is the collection of photographs created by Martin Trailer.
My art work is created with the past in mind. My photographs are simple views of vintage scenes, or common objects from the past representing the “old” days, simpler times.
Often the view will be remembrance of fun times and objects built to standards of the past, representing a quality build recorded with a modern photographic approach.
Often the images will bring a flood of memories to mind, real or imagined.
Though my subject matter various, the vintage thought is always present. Texture is used in most images along with color adjustments to give the vintage look and feel.
An independent working photographer for 35+ years, based in San Diego, California.
Started working as a photojournalist early on, and then moved on to working in the advertising/commercial/corporate business realm. That beginning in photojournalism, story telling is a major influence in my work, both advertising/commercial and now fine art.
A photograph without a story, is just another snapshot. To engage the viewer, there needs to be something more, a story.
