Mario Gerth

Bold, soulful and intriguing portraits of otherworldly characters

Artist Profile

Mario Gerth is a world class German photographer who has pursued his passion by documenting his travels through 80 different countries across five continents.

He has travelled extensively including a 24 month trip by bicycle, boat, jeep and on foot to some of the most remote regions of Africa where life has changed little if any in 3000 years. There he visited some of last nomadic and semi nomadic tribes, stayed with indigenous families and captured in his pictures, everyday life, exceptional moments and the unique personalities of the people he met along the way.

His travels through India fulfilled his obsession with the ‘Sadhus’ – holy men who choose a basic and frugal life, shunning everyday comforts and choosing to leave their families to live in temples, forests and caves for a more spiritual wealth.

In both places, he met some of the happiest people he has ever come across in life.


“My pictures document, inform and conserve. My main goal is to encourage and inspire through photography.”

Mario Gerth

What We Love About Mario's Work

My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw these images for the first time. They are powerful and entrancing with a softness of light and richness of texture that emerges boldly from the dark background making it seem almost possible to reach out and touch the skin of the person in the photograph.

When selecting works for the Art Room, I found myself drawn to Mario’s African and Indian collections. This may be coincidence but I like to think it was some sort of innate connection as I was born in Kenya and I have Indian heritage!

These works grasp you firmly at first glance and make you wonder about the person looking back at you. They are soulful and intriguing, uplifting and truly incredible works of art.
