Loretta Lux

Heavily influenced by the techniques and compositions of Old Masters, Loretta Lux’s photographs of children are eerily beautiful, totally surreal and strangely perfect. Her method is probably closer to painting than photography, resulting in her producing only five to seven new works a year on average – a lot less than you would expect from a photographer rather than a painter. She imposes photographs of children onto painted backdrops and digitally enhances the images so that the colours are a perfect blend of subtle and vivid shades, resulting in striking and quite unforgettable works of art.
