Artist's Opening Reception:  Vera Lutter at Martin Weinstein Gallery

From 2005 through 2008, Lutter began photographing Venice during the anticipated high water seasons, shooting the canals, gondolas, palazzos and the Basilica San Marco with a pinhole camera, which was often an apartment turned camera obscura by blacking out the windows. Through Lutter's camera, the beautiful and romantic city became haunting and ghostly, reduced to striking monochrome contrasts.

This exhibirion marks the internationally recognized artist Vera Lutter first in Minneapolis.   After graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich in 1991, Lutter moved to New York and studied at the School of Visual Art's Photography and Related Media program where she received an MFA in 1995. In order to capture an immediate and direct imprint of her experience in New York, Lutter decided to turn the room in which she lived into a large pinhole camera, or camera obscura. Through a simple pinhole instead of an optically carved lens, the outside world flooded the interior of the room and projected an inverted image onto the opposite wall on. Exposing directly onto wall-size sheets of photographic paper, Lutter decided to retain the negative image and refrain from multiplication or reproduction, making every image unique.

From 2005 through 2008, Lutter began photographing Venice during the anticipated high water seasons, shooting the canals, gondolas, palazzos and the Basilica San Marco with a pinhole camera, which was often an apartment turned camera obscura by blacking out the windows. Through Lutter's camera, the beautiful and romantic city became haunting and ghostly, reduced to striking monochrome contrasts.
