New York: Cade Martin

The only child of a university art professor and a free-thinking mother, Cade Martin grew up immersed in a creative community in Richmond, VA. The foundation for his love of art and composition was laid in museum halls, movie theatres and art studios, and at home around a dinner table inhabited by an eclectic cast of characters who shaped his appreciation for the candid beauty found in people from all walks of life.

Cade has been chasing characters ever since. He seeks their stories - through their faces, their bodies and sometimes their costumes - in a common thread from his commercial work to his personal projects. Characters are the heroes in his pictures.

Cade works internationally and creates images for editorial, advertising, fashion and lifestyle clients that include Marriott, Merrill Lynch, The NY Philharmonic, Neenah Paper, Procter & Gamble, The Smithsonian, Starbucks, Tommy Hilfiger, Volkswagen and The Washington Ballet.
