Data on the reaction $\gamma p \to K^+\Lambda$ from the CLAS experiments are used to derive the leading multipoles, E0+, M1-, E1+, and M1+, from the production threshold to 2180\,MeV in 24 slices of the invariant mass. The four multipoles are determined without any constraints. The multipoles are fitted using a multichannel L+P model which allows us to search for singularities and to extract the positions of poles on the complex energy plane in an almost model-independent method. The multipoles are also used as additional constraints in an energy-dependent analysis of a large body of pion and photo-induced reactions within the Bonn-Gatchina (BnGa) partial wave analysis. The study confirms the existence of poles due to nucleon resonances with spin-parity J^P = 1/2^-; 1/2^+, and 3/2^+ in the region at about 1.9\,GeV.
