Vera Lutter
Kaiserslautern, Germany, 1960
She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and at the MFA School of Visual Arts in New York. Vera Lutter’s photographs are unique and irreproducible, since instead of a standard camera she turns a room as big as a shipping container into a giant pinhole camera. The dimensions of the photographic paper and their graininess are the results of personal and courageous experimentation with traditional photographic techniques. She has been able to extend the length of time to impress on the photosensitive film by keeping the camera’s lens open for hours, days or even weeks. She lives in New York City.
