He has presented his works worldwide in the form of exhibitions, books, and calendars and his photographs are displayed in museums and galleries around the world. In recent years, Baumann has taken his place among the most influential photographers of our time and you now have a chance to meet and learn from him at his first exhibition in Australia.
