Anna-Lena Krause is a photographer and visual artist from Berlin, currently based in London. She obtained her BA of Photography at University of Applied Science in Berlin and is currently studying towards her Masters Degree at the Royal College of Art in London. Krause has had various group exhibitions including the Rencontres des Arles, France, the European Months of Photography in Berlin, ‘Sweet Harmony‘ at Saatchi Gallery in London, and ‘No Photos on the Dance Floor‘ at the C/O Berlin.
Her work explores sociological and cultural phenomena in modern societies, focusing primarily on perception and memory.By combining photography, film and sculpture the artist explores contrasting modes of representation, highlighting the differences in our shaping of concepts, suggesting that perception is not a passive but an active action, driven by intentionality. Krause’s work questions how ideas we have of ourselves are influenced through the environments we are nurtured in, attempting to interpret the complexity of human connection and the unseen space that develops between them. .
