Contemporary Artist: Vera Lutter
Venue: Max Hetzler, Berlin
Contemporary artist Vera Lutter uses an ancient technique called camera obscura in which pictures appear as silhouettes. This technique is said to date back to the 5th century B.C. first used by Chinese philosopher Mo-Ti. Using camera obscura, pictures appear in an upside-down inverted manner. Vera Lutter, who now lives in New York, was born in 1960 in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Click here for more information about her latest exhibition.
