The mannequin in its modern form appeared on the high streets of London, Paris and New York in the 1870s and quickly became an essential part of any window display. Mannequins have always been much more than an elaborate hanger to showcase the fashionable clothing of the time.

About Artist

Hans-Martin Doelz

Hans-Martin Dölz is a German artist renowned for his architectural and abstract photography. He studied Mathematics and Business Administration at the Universities of Bochum and Göttingen and graduated in 1979 with a master’s degree in Business Administration. After retirement, his passion for art was ignited. His first artworks were graphic images, computer-generated via mathematical algorithms. He was fascinated by the interplay between colors, lines and shapes. These works drew inspiration from French media artist Vera Molnár who is considered a pioneer of computer art back in the 1960s. He later experimented using actual photographs as seeds of computer modifications that turned them into abstract images. Some of these explorations involved fractals, which lead to universes within universes, never ending cascades of self-similar geometric beauty. Since 2013 Hans-Martin focuses mainly on photography without alteration. Most of his images capture the stunning geometric patterns that can be found in man-made structures and the natural world. His work has been published worldwide and it has been recognized with numerous international awards. In 2014 his book "shapes - colors - structures" with a selection of 33 works from the time frame 2010 - 2014 was published. In 2017 he was awarded the Pangea Prize, the coveted crystal ball for the best photo in the architecture category at the Siena International Photo Awards. In 2019 he has been appointed a member of the Jury for the 5th edition of The Siena International Photo Awards. In 2020 the distinction Excellence FIAP (EFIAP) has been awarded to him by the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP). In 2021 he has been appointed head of the 1X ambassador team which comes from countries such as Abu Dhabi, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Dominica, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Norway, Pakistan, Portugal, Slovenia, Thailand, Turkey, UK and USA. Founded in 2007 by two Swedish photographers, 1X has developed since one of the most prestigious online galleries for photography in the world.
