The photographer Ralph Man is self-tought and has occupied himself with photography from an early childhood. Even during his apprenticeship as a carpenter, his passion for photography always played a very important role. After completing his studies, he took up employment as a carpenter whilst still nurturing his talents and developing his photographic skills. Once confident and experienced enough to express his ideas through this medium, Ralph Man turned his passion into a career. He has since been working for advertising, magazines and exhibits his work in galleries.
