The artist Uta Barth
Born Jan 29 1958, Berlin, Germany.
Lives and works in Los Angeles, .

Style and technique of the artist: Photography, Citibank-Prize,

Barth’s images of interiors, buildings, suburban roads or natural environments are often out of focus, perversely cropped and apparently empty of any foreground subject. Yet what emerges from this reduction and abstraction of subject matter is a body of photographs of extraordinary, haunting beauty, evocative of great moments in the history of painting, from Vermeer to Whistler, or of a cinematic ambience such as the fume-laden neon haze of Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver.
