Moritz Krauth’s work is characterized by portraits that show both a distance and an intimacy between the people who are photographed and himself. His works vacillates between the intimate report and the documentary. In the “Er” series, it’s his best friend, who is critically ill, that he uses as a topic: “We decided together that I had to document the steps of his life and the changes of his body and of his spirit.” His approach to photography is based on emotions and intuition.
