Clement’s Copenhagen.

Born in Copenhagen in 1948, Krass Clement is a self-taught photographer who’s moody, melancholic and evocative work feels like a cross between the films of Ingmar Bergman and the street photography of Eugene Richards

He is reportedly less concerned with documenting a scene than with capturing a state of mind, which gives his work a feeling that it has been shot in a strange twilight world reminiscent of our own but somehow not.

Once again I’m reminded when looking at Clement’s work, that the street photographer is the true ‘outsider artist’, painstakingly recording a world that would otherwise go unnoticed.
