Kristina Krause

I am a photographer in Los Angeles, CA. When I am not taking pictures, I am working on a PhD in American Literature, focusing on the influences and collaborations between early twentieth-century American women writers and photographers.

What informs my photographic aesthetic is summed up by writer Annie Dillard who says that, " and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there." I try to be there with camera in hand.

As for the name "Redzenradish," it's inspired by a haiku by Japanese poet Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828). It challenges me to see things newly no matter where I am as the smallest, most ordinary thing may become a vehicle for transformation.
