Daniel Kraus




Daniel Seth Kraus‘s work blends historical research with photographic practice to deepen our understanding of people and places. His research includes investigations of faith and work in the American South which culminate in artist books and exhibitions. At present, he is photographing the history and remains of a mothballed federal works project, the Cross Florida Ship Canal. Kraus’s work has been featured in numerous print and online publications, including Fraction Magazine, SeeSaw Magazine, Oxford American, and Aint-Bad Magazine. His photographs have been exhibited in national and international juried exhibitions, including the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia. He earned a MFA in photography at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He also holds a BFA in photography and a BA in history from the University of North Florida. In 2016 Kraus received College Arts Association’s Professional Development Fellowship in Visual Arts.
