Susanne Kriemann

In her photographic projects, Susanne Kriemann (born 1972 in Erlangen, Germany, lives and works in Rotterdam and Berlin) takes a research-oriented approach: dealing with archival and forgotten documents in particular is a central aspect to her work. The found photo material then frequently serves as a starting point for her own images. Formal or thematic analogies generate multifaceted layers of association, which address the circumstances in which the historical images were produced, their preservation, as well as their link to the present day—and always also examine her own medium of photography.
