Featured Video: Vera Lutter: The Museum in her Camera Obscura

Artist Vera Lutter uses the camera obscura to create photographs with an ethereal, otherworldly beauty. Invited by LACMA to work in residence at the museum, this short film shares rare behind-the-scenes footage of the artist, her assistants, and the museum staff creating a new body of work examining the campus architecture, galleries, and collection holdings.

 

LACMA's Artists on Art videos offer insights into works in the museum's encyclopedic collection that have inspired and informed artists working today.
