Tooth For An Eye has been added to your Cart. As with her beautiful work of portraiture, One Big Self, Deborah Luster creates an indescribeable experience that is complex and difficult and like having life itself told inside you. Chorography is an ancient term for a kind of geography that seeks to portray the qualities of place rather than the measurements of it. From within an all too present and difficult subject - violent killing - Ms Luster seems to give voice to the city of New Orleans itself, timber and tone of the telling somehow given through the eyes in these beautiful, almost anachronistic photographs.

Deborah Luster (born 1951) is a photographic artist from Northwest Arkansas, US, and has been a professional photographer since the 1990s. Luster has at least one book in print, One Big Self:Prisoners of Louisiana, and is known for using older technology such as tintype to document and artistically portray violent crime and related topics.

In 1988 Deborah Luster’s mother was murdered by a hired killer. In every picture in the show, and in the book that accompanies it, Tooth for an Eye, produced by Twin Palms Publishers in Santa Fe, . A decade later, still trying to come to grips emotionally with that death, Ms. Luster began taking photographic portraits of inmates, many of them convicted of violent crimes, in state prisons in Louisiana, where she lives. The portraits were tender and personal. we learn of terrible events now in the past, violated lives now gone. Yet through the materialized memory that is photography, malignant spirits of place live on.
