A/A photographer Paul Kranzler has a gifted eye for revealing, intimate portraits, whether the subjects are stars of sports and film or some of the closest people in his life.
For the September 27th issue of Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, Paul photographed Niki Lauda, the three-time Formula One racing world champion, and actor Daniel Brühl. The photo appeared as part of an interview feature coinciding with the release of “Rush,” a new film based on Lauda’s life.
Through October 26th, you have an opportunity to see some of the finest examples of Paul’s portraiture as part of the "Syndicate 18" exhibit at the Academy of the Visual Arts (Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst) in Leipzig, Germany. As part of the school’s continuing exhibits with works from Meisterschüler, Paul presents two decades' worth of portraits of young people, including a self-portrait from his own youth in the 1990s.
But if you feel like staying closer to home, Paul’s portraits of family and friends, first published in his book Brut, are now available for you to interact with and explore in a very different format: an iPad app. As Paul previously wrote about this project:
These are images of places and people I have known for a long time, whether related by blood or otherwise. Indeed the people, places and landscapes of your own environment are always the most photographed motif in the world. Perhaps one’s personal environment is four-dimensional: the three dimensions of space plus the fourth dimension, i.e. the emotion inherent to that (living/human) space.
