    Dear Visual Media visitors,

    This first monograph on German photographer Loretta Lux (1969) offers
    some of today's most alienated children portraits.
    In spite of these heavily manipulated images, Loretta Lux creates a
    dreamlike world of both wonderful and eerie children, inspired by
    historical portraiture.

    For further reading on these Uncanny but Charming portraits goto Visual
    Media publication page announcing also a currently running and coming
    Loretta Lux exhibition.

    Follow the links to enjoy more of these heavily manipulated photographs
    into Heavenly Children Portraits.
