Rut Blees Luxemburg's technique is to take photographs at night, mostly exploring the urban landscape. Rut employs long exposures to allow her to use the light emanating from the street only, for instance from office blocks or street lights in her photos. Many of her photographs and prints deal with nocturnal themes.

Rut's photograph Towering Inferno was used as the cover art for The Streets' album Original Pirate Material. The photo depicts the beauty of a lit up council tower block. She also contributed A Modern Project for use as the cover of Bloc Party's second album, A Weekend in the City.

Rut is a Reader in Urban Aesthetics and a Senior Research Fellow at the Royal College of Art, focusing on the transformation of the Battersea South Campus. Her work as an artist and photographer concerns the representation of the city and the phenomenon of the urban, combining formats from large-scale photographic work, through public art installations and operatic mise-en-scène. Recent projects include: Silver Forest, an architectural installation on the western façade of Westminster City Hall; and London Dust, a series of photographs and a film that trace the rapid architectural transformation of the City of London in relation to the development of CGI photographic representation.

Who is it for?
This will be a fascinating wide-reaching talk on the perspectives and influences of an innovative, current creative. Book your free place now to avoid missing out.
