Thomas Lüttge's images fit no stereotypes.
Because his photographs refuse categorization,
he often notices that his viewers become uneasy.
They find no common code of semantics to judge
his work in terms of meaning and aesthetic value.
They are unaccustomed to images that posit neither
the objectivity of documentary photographs,
nor the subjectivity of the purely emotional.
His work cannot be labeled as political-social commentary,
nor can it be considered fashion photography.
His work claims no connection to the painterly arts,
and is neither entirely realistic nor abstract.
His images yield no easy answers, but instead invite the viewer
to linger and hear the stories his objects and figures wish to tell.
Thomas Lüttge sets the space/time parameters of the scene –
but the drama itself unfolds between image and viewer.
