Sascha Kraus’ pictures are strongly bond to moments. The pictures do not only show, but capture moments and connect individual significance with cultural and political relevance. The photographs are a way of expressing communication and create a connection between the represented and the viewer. Therefore, the photographic work creates an interface between documentary and conceptual photography – it always captures the uniqueness of moments. The outreach covers different forms of expression, seriousness and values.
