Vera Lutter

“Vera Lutter has revived and modified the camera obscura in unusual and intriguing ways…she prints extremely large, sometimes wall-size images as the end product. The photographic images are exposed over several hours or even months, capturing traces of movement and creating a ghostly sense of temporality. Vera Lutter’s work has not only revived the camera obscura but also reinvented photography itself, creating a new sensitivity to both time and space.” — Peter Wollen

“Vera Lutter uses the camera obscura, the most basic photographic device, to render in massive form images that serve as faithful transcriptions of immense architectural spaces… These are physically ambitious works that trace the way light moves through space and creates an impression in a direct way”– Anna Hammond
