Joshua Lutz is an American artist working with large-format photography and video. Lutz was given his first solo exhibition at Gitterman Gallery during the summer of 2004. In 2008, Lutz’s first book, “Meadowlands,” was published with powerHouse Books. In essayist Robert Sullivan’s introduction to the monograph, he describes the Meadowlands as “. . .that giant swath of swamp and space that separates New Jersey from New York City, or, put another way, from New York City and the rest of the United States of America.” “The New Yorker” wrote: “Joshua Lutz takes the New Topographics of Adams, Shore, and Sternfeld into its current era of urban sprawl.” In the fall of 2008, Lutz had a solo exhibition for the “Meadowlands” series at ClampArt in New York City. 2013 saw the release of Lutz’s second book, “Hesitating Beauty.” A series of photographs revealing a different side of Lutz’s work—this body of work tells an extremely personal story of his mother. The book’s narrative carefully and thoughtfully encompasses the generally sensitive topic of mental illness. An exhibition of the work was mounted at ClampArt in New York City to coincide with the release of the monograph from Schilt Publishing.
