    In the Studio with Vera Lutter

    "Being a woman in the art world, it's a little bit like being an outsider." On the occasion of being featured in Phillips' exhibition 'NOMEN: American Women Artists from 1945 to Today', Vera Lutter sat down with us to discuss the evolution of her practice and the evolving landscapes that have characterized her career to date.

    Among the most innovative photographers working today, Vera Lutter produces one-of-a-kind photographs that incorporate fundamental principles of her medium. To make her work, she creates a room-size camera obscura with a simple pinhole, exposing large sheets of photographic paper on the opposite wall. The result is a unique large-scale black-and-white image that she retains as a unique negative. In this image, Lutter pictures the Piazza San Marco in Venice, capturing its famous architecture and their reflections at a fittingly monumental scale.
