Joachim Schmid is a Berlin based artist who has worked with found photography since the early 1980s. He began his career as a freelance critic and the publisher of the German magazine Fotokritik. In 1987 he focused on his own art production, based primarily on found photography and public image sources. Living near one of the largest flea markets in Berlin, he had already amassed a rich, deep, and varied collection of vernacular photography which formed the raw material for many of his works. In recent years, his practise has taken him to the Internet to create provocative works that reflect the future of photography in a networked, global culture.
