After moving to New York in 1991, photographer Vera Lutter began experimenting with the camera obscura, inspired by the city's architecture and light. She turned her studio apartment into a pinhole camera, using wall-size sheets of photographic paper to capture large-scale, long-exposure black-and-white images of her surroundings. Lutter retains the negative as her final image and refrains from multiplication or reproduction. In addition to her photographs of New York, Venice, and other locations (including Egypt's deserts and pyramids in 2010), Lutter has created images of industrial sites like abandoned factories and shipyards.
