The to ten copies limited and numbered large-format photography impresses with a staggering depth effect, brilliant colors and sharp details. The high-tech print on a high-resolution photo textile is stretched on an aluminum frame with integrated LED background lighting.

As if nature acts as an artist, using the hull like a canvas to document vividly the impact of natural forces on the artifacts of sailors.
Sea wash, weather, sunlight and other factors solve more and more the initially purely graphic design of material, shape and color and seem to randomly create vibrant textures, which merely suggest what this ship part of steel, aluminum or wood had to suffer from during its journey across the oceans. Helmut Kraus’ photographies of the edition ShipSides are authentic documents of maritime aesthetics.

About us

Company details

The photographer and freelance graphic designer Helmut Kraus lives in Düsseldorf and on Mallorca. His passion for sailing lead the studied philosopher to the themes of his photographic works. Already in adolescents years windsurfing opened the world behind beach and pier for him and influenced his sensitivity for the inimitable beauty of the sea.
His characteristic Maritime Photography portraits the constant change of rest and motion, warm and cold as well as color and monochrome as a subjective concentration of the mood experienced at sea. This photography opens the world behind the mere seeing.
Helmut Kraus composes his photographic seascapes with an almost infinite variety of lightning effects, color nuances and contrasts. He leads the observer into limitless landscapes made of water and sky, light and color. Not only in the liquid element, but also in aged hulls of ships he traces an unique beauty. Fading artworks, created from the forces of nature and perpetuated through the camera.
The remarkable works from Helmut Kraus invite to linger meditatively in the landscapes and surfaces, to feel the peace and power of nature and to discover the essential and original.

“My camera’s lenses are used as subjective instruments. With them I make my view of the world comprehensible for others.”
Helmut Kraus (DGPh)
