Artist of the Month - Beate Kratt
Using the camera as a lens Beate focuses on and immerses herself in the intimate details of a place. It does not take long for her to feel its beauty and spirit. Collecting sand, bark and rusty pieces of metal deepen this contact and also develops a feeling of belonging. Later in her studio, Beate creates photographs and digital collages, using layers of different images to capture the inherent meaning of the place.
