Mark UrionaMark Uriona

was born in 1975. He learned how to walk in Mozambique and was raised in East Germany. During an exchange year in the U.S.A., a very special person lent him an old Nikomat that he never gave back. Wagner went nuts on photography. But he did not believe that it could earn any bread. He studied law and works as a research consultant for a member of parliament. He writes speeches, essays, newspaper articles, and is learning the business of politics, which he has never come to like. With Chris Fischer he founded the “Kameradists” in 2011. Wagner is a member of the editorial staff of the “Prague Spring”, has worked for “Geo Season”, the project “Bosnian voices” and the Helmholtz Association and is publishing a selection of his photographs at www.kameradist-wagner.de
