Loretta Lux and Her Big Headed Kids

Thirty-nine year old German photographer Loretta Lux has hit her stride with her surreal portraits of children. In the same grand German tradition like the famous Becher duo each photo is framed almost exactly the same and the child almost in the exactly same position -- the end result is a bit eerie and beautiful. So, ok, these prints aren't vintage -- but it's nice that she adds the vintage touch with her props and little outfits. The photo on top is on action at Phillips de Pury for an estimated 3,000 - 5,000 pounds.
