The Foundation’s citation:

Robert Häusser is one of the leading pictorial artists in present-day German photography. His work can be described as an extension and development of the “subjective photography” genre, which was launched, and won considerable acclaim, in Europe during the post-war years. His graphic and pregnant studies of landscapes and architecture combine a fine simplification of the essentials of his subjects with a quietly threatening tone. Häusser’s work reveals an intricate interplay between surface and depth.
