The photography work of Claus encompasses a wide range of styles from traditional portraits (featuring an inherent sensible depth) to nature studies, as well as experimental and abstract topics. When he began experimental photography in the 1970s, Claus was already using a mono mode laser as an illumination source. At the age of 16 he won his first nation-wide photo competition.
Inspired by the international environment of the European capital and driven by the vision to bring people of diverse backgrounds together through a common interest in photography, Claus founded Photoresk, the internationally growing, non-profit learning and knowledge-sharing network which facilitates intercultural communication and understanding via photography, but also via other channels.
