Uta Barth

Uta Barth (born 1958 in Berlin ) is a German photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles.

Uta Barth created photographs that often have such a blur, that they do not document reality but represent the perception. She shows her work repeated in sets of two photographs that are reminiscent of diptychs and where sometimes the same subject is shot with very little altered perspective.

Since 1990 she is professor at the University of California, Riverside.

Her photographs can be found in several collections, including the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Tate Gallery in London, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.

In 2012 she received a MacArthur Fellowship.
