Loretta Lux’s Photography of Unhappy Children

Loretta Lux photography is of children who don’t appear to like being children. We all knew/know/were/are one of those melancholy kids who for whatever reason didn’t take to the joys and silliness of being a kid… the adult veneerer had gotten to them early, like they’d already been trough a long tuff life. Lux’s portraits capture these kids with old souls perfectly. Her process is a combination of photography and digital manipulation — Lux removes the original backgrounds and replace them with ones that contribute to the mood she is going for.
