I am very honoured to present the work of Loretta Lux on The F Blog. According to me Loretta is one of the most fascinating modern photographers. But her photographs are also somewhat controversial. Charming, disturbing, wonderful, creepy, repelant, brilliant, kitschy are some of the words that have been used to describe Loretta Lux photographs. ”It doesn’t matter what I intend”, says Loretta. ”People are allowed to think what they please. What matters is whether or not the pictures work” (quote from American Photo Nr 3/2005). I love the photographs of Loretta Lux, but judge for your self!

About her photographs Loretta says: ”An artist picks a subject that he likes, so I picked children because that is what I can most connect with. But my work is not about the children I photograph. It’s not children’s portraits or portraits in a traditional sense. I don’t try to capture the model’s individual psychology. I treat them as a metaphor for childhoold and for innocence. Childhood is an important and most influential part of life. During childhood we learn to live in this world. But childhood cannot be repeated and that is in many ways underfortunate. It is tragic”. (quote from The Sun, New York, May 12, 2005)
