Uta Barth

Uta Barth was born in Berlin in 1958 and lives and works in Los Angeles. Having worked for well over two decades, Barth has come to occupy a truly singular position in contemporary photography. Having made visual perception itself the subject of her work her images may appear empty as they, with blurred backgrounds and cropped frames capture incidental and fleeting moments. By deconstructing the conventions of visual representation she draws attention to the periphery and to the limits of human vision.
