After improving skills in pure lightpainting-photography for years, Florian Krause got inspired 2009 at the „Meeting of Styles“ event in his hometown Wiesbaden, Germany, to combine his lightart with the art on walls. Right away he got addicted to it. Since that moment he`s pushing the level and became a perfectionist for every single exposure.
His passion for graffiti and streetart lead him to various countries finding new spots and new artists. During the last years his pictures were published in various books and magazines. As long as there are new inspiring walls, he will go on documenting this vanishing artform at its best. He`s respected by the scene for innovate an unique photography-style.
To him, photography is the closest thing to bring streetart into the gallery.
Since 2016 Florian Krause puts his focus on dronelighting. During longexposure he flies the lights on a drone above icebergs, rocks, castles. The camera freezes each lightray, so on the picture it looks like there`s a huge softbox-light above the object. He`s a pioneer with this new technique.
