Photographically, Werner Karrasch doesn't have a free rein. His assigment are determined by professional interest and needs, and the images are a photo documentary experience, influenced by his detailed knowledge of his subjects. Werner Karrasch has developed a distinctive imagery, which expresses the Museum's profile and contribute visually to our cultural heritage. He captures the moment in a universe of impressions, atmosphere and activity - and portrays lights, sounds, smells and leben in a still photograph. The photographs do not always reveal complete stories. The viewer is offered a variety of cues that let dreas take flight and invite the audience to form their own interpretations. Sometimes, the act of documentation becomes magical and gains a poetic dimension.
The exhibition provides a retrospective on both the Museum's history and Werner Karraschs work as a photographer, through series of selected themes.
