Without exception, the unusual photographs by Ingar Krauss (*1965 in Berlin) are portraits of children and teenagers in faded gray and sepia tones. The subjects look serious, proud, unapproachable, remote, and sometimes defiant-childlike, and yet too mature for their age. Frequently, the photographer finds his models at home and on his travels to typical childhood institutions of the former Eastern Bloc countries: summer camps, Socialist clubhouses for Young Pioneers, and orphanages. Krauss prints his black-and-white portraits on old photographic paper produced in Eastern Europe, which gives his pictures a timeless, melancholy tone. In 2004 the artist received the Leica Prize of the Grand Prix International de Photographie in Vevey. His work has already been presented in numerous solo and group shows both in Germany and abroad.
