Using room-sized cameras, Lutter often inhabits the camera during the exposure which can last hours, days or even weeks. The camera obscura works with the premise that when light passes through a small hole into a darkened chamber it produces an inverted image on the opposite wall. Lutter projects her subjects onto photo-sensitized paper and develops them as unique negatives.
