Anna-Lena Krause is a photographer and visual artist from Berlin, currently based in London. Her work explores sociological and cultural phenomena in modern societies, focusing primarily on perception and memory. By combining photography, film and sculpture she explores contrasting modes of representation, highlighting the differences in our shaping of concepts, suggesting that perception is not passive but active, driven by intentionality. Her work questions how our understanding of ourselves is influenced by the environments we are nurtured in.
She obtained her BA of Photography at University of Applied Science in 2018 in Berlin and her MA Degree in 2021 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, ‘No Photos on the Dance Floor‘ at the C/O Berlin and ‘Up All Night: Looking Closely at Rave Culture’ at KUMU Art Museum in Estonia.
