His photographic approach is based on a scrupulous and sociologist observation of human groups: politician who have been slammed in the artifice of the protocol or economical elites who invest in developing countries…
Formal qualities of his pictures appeal to us, but at the same time it distils an acid look, which deconstructs the power’s instruments and its machinery. Then, after the political power in Protokoll and the economical power in Tropical Gift, Christian Lutz works on the religious power and chooses to shot an evangelist movement in Switzerland. He will give an end to a trilogy which is fundamentally political and intentionally concerned.
Protokoll is the first volume of a trilogy devoted to the notion of power, which Lutz developed in collaboration with Lars Müller Publishers. With Protokoll, he describes the codes of political representation. Signed copy Lars Müller Publishers (2007) 92 pages 24 x 30 cm ISBN :3037781106
Christian Lutz continues his photographic study of power structures with “Tropical Gift”. He took portraits in Nigeria of people who live by and with the economic force that dominates everything there, the oil and gas industry.
