Loretta Lux uses the magic of contemporary photographic techniques

to transform one image into another.

Having studied painting before taking up photography,

Loretta Lux’s careful analysis of classic portrait painting

has inspired the balance between  a clearly fixed portrait composition

and the application of cutting edge photographic technology.

Contemporary children pose for her photos but dressed as though

they come from the past; they are placed in backgrounds

so calm and peaceful that the lack of movement gradually becomes alienating.

Loretta Lux is a master at preserving an intense calm while creating an undercurrent

of disturbing emotions.
