Christian Lutz

 
Swiss photographer Christian Lutz (born 1973, lives and works in Geneva) is a graduate from ESA 75, L'Ecole Supérieure des Arts et de l'Image in Brussels, and is a recipient of several awards. His work is both exhibited throughout the world and regularly published.
From 2003 to 2012 the primary focus of Christian Lutz was to create a trilogy on power that brought him international recognition. Three books: Protokoll, Tropical Gift and In Jesus' Name were subsequently published based on political, economic and religious power. His photographic approach focuses on a scrupulous sociological observation of human groups and while the formal qualities of his images are visually appealing they often reflect an acerbic visual commentary on our collective preconceived socio-political constructs. From his earlier documentary approach to photography, his work has since evolved to encompass a more cinematographic perception of his environment.
