Loretta Lux

Loretta Lux was born in Dresden, (East) Germany in 1969. She studied visual art in Munich in early 1990s. Her photographs of children, posed and directed, with subtle digital manipulation of colour and background, create a surreal effect of detachment. . The intention is to create images of people that the viewer can recognize as not being portraits of those people and so will project their own selves into the role portrayed by the performer/model and create personal connections with that figure. While not prolific, Lux's photographs are highly sought after and she has attracted international gallery attention
