Untitled (Beelitz), 2006, by Ingar Krauss
Photographer Ingar Krauss has been working on a new body of portraits documenting a new wave of immigrant farmworkers in Germany. Many of the workers are highly-educated (doctors, lawyers, etc.) people from struggling Eastern European countries. The images remind me of those from The Grapes of Wrath, or The Unbearable Lightness of Being. They seem a natural continuation of Krauss' portraits of orphans and juvenile offenders, which we reviewed earlier in Lens Culture.
The new work is on display in Milan, Italy at the Galleria Suzy Shammah, through January 31.
