Loretta Lux

Here is a sampling of Loretta Lux's masterful photographic portraiture using real children, staged scenery (often her own paintings), and subtle computer wizardry. I am always drawn to simplified paper-doll or sticker-like flat depictions of subjects. In fact, I wish I knew where all those much labored-over sticker books from my childhood were hidden away. xo
